Speed Writing Training Course Outline

COURSE AIMS

This Speed Writing course will enable you to learn a consistent technique to abbreviate words.  It is simple to learn and easy to apply.

The method differs from shorthand in that it uses the standard English alphabet rather than symbols or outlines.

The main focus of the first day is to cover the theory and build a discipline to the way in which you approach words.  Once this is in place we use dictation exercises to build your confidence and speed.

KEY BENEFITS
Upon completion of this course, you will be equipped with knowledge and tools that enable you to:
  • Identify word groupings
