Self-starters Course

* $265.00 - $365.00 | Cancellation Policy

Paced for busy adults and older teens who are task-oriented self-starters, highly motivated, and require less in-class training. It is not suitable for students younger than 14, unless stated otherwise. It’s ideal for those who are short on time, but disciplined and committed to following through on their own. The standard Qwerty keyboard is regularly taught. Alternative layouts, such as the Dvorak keyboard or single-handed layouts are taught by special arrangement. Regardless of layout, be sure to allot adequate time outside of class for assignment completion with our class materials, which are provided in class; time required varies by student.

This course is offered throughout the year with various options, including the 1-day Just the Basics option. Weekend options are primarily offered four times per year over holiday weekends: MLK Holiday Weekend (January), Memorial Day Weekend (May), Labor Day Weekend (September; Basics for Back-to-School for ages 12 and up), and Veterans Day Weekend (November). Session lengths vary. See calendar/schedule. Occasionally, other dates may be added. Participants will receive a dexterity assessment and personalized goal-setting by the end of the 3-day course.

Day 1: Basics | The focus is on building muscle memory and proficiency with a focus on building good ergonomic habits. Course covers ergonomics, finger paths for letters, capitalization, punctuation, and horizontal numbers.

Day 2: Speed | Exercises focusing on improving Speed and increasing words per minute will be added.

Day 3: Accuracy | While still working on increasing Speed, students will begin working on honing their Accuracy.

Increased speed comes naturally when practicing with our materials and following our methodology. As with any new skill, practice outside of class is required. Those who see the most powerful results, immediately begin using this new skill correctly and frequently on a daily basis and commit to practice with our materials for at least 30 minutes per day.
