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.

“This class is a great way to learn how to type. I think KEYTIME has done a great job. This is going to make 5th grade easier.”
