Technology Tip #16: Type Faster!

Increase your productivity at work and stop using your pointer finger to peck at your keyboard. Invest 15 minutes a day for practicing typing and increase your speed and accuracy. Many standard office and administrative jobs have a mandatory typing speed between 30 to 50 WPM. What is yours?

I used to teach typing courses for Department of Workforce Development clients. My favorite tool to use outside of the classroom was to suggest the website TypingWeb. It is a great website because you create your own account and it will track your progress. It will also help you catch where you make mistakes. If you make it to a certain level or finish a program it will also make printable certificates. The best part? It is free.

So at least check it out, and see how fast you can type!
