Get Busy Doing Other Things

KEYTIME® classes are held at our Seattle office or on location at businesses and schools, worldwide. Instruction is designed for beginners as well as experienced keyboarders who wish to quickly improve their skills with less fatigue through better ergonomics as well as their productivity by increasing speed and accuracy. Not in Seattle? Review our distance learning options.

Improve Speed Quickly

Students average an increase of 15 to 20 words per minute in a KEYTIME® session (three day - 3 hour class, four day - 2 1/2 hour class, or five day - 2 hour class), equivalent to a twelve week semester in conventional typing classes with one hour a day. We offer the KEYTIME® class for ages 10 through adult or KEYTIME® Kids Academy for ages 4 to 9. As with any new skill, practice is required. The more quickly this new skill is regularly used, the more powerful the results.

Choice of Keyboard

The keyboards we teach are standard Qwerty; two-handed Dvorak and Dvorak’s single-handed—left and right. Learn about the different types of keyboards.

5 Day Class for 4th Grade through Adult

Daily classes, for one week, are the most effective means for quick results. This 10 hour class teaches what usually takes a semester (12 weeks) of daily instruction in a conventional classroom program. During the first KEYTIME® session, students learn the entire keyboard lettering by touch. Those who see the most powerful results tend to immediately start using their new skill, correctly and frequently, on a daily basis. As with any new skill, practice is required. Be prepared to allot adequate time outside of class for assignment completion; this varies by student. Materials included in cost. All classes are held at KEYTIME unless otherwise specified.
