Touch typing

Search All Resources

KeyboardMore and more we are required to enter data and information through a keyboard. Imagine the amount of time you can save in your life if you speed up your typing just a little.  

We have searched the internet to find useful resources for St Peter's members to learn new skills and we would like to recommend the GCF Free Learn Typing Tutorial.  This free course will take you step-by-step through the basics of touch typing, steadily building your accuracy and speed.

The course is free to use and user friendly with helpful animated audio along the way
