With so many jobs today involving the use of a computer, it is no surprise that employers are looking to recruit people with fast and accurate keyboard skills. Employees who are able to type fast will be more productive than those who can’t. And by typing more accurately, not only will they make fewer potentially costly mistakes, they will give a better impression to customers too.

Open Awards offer two unique touch-typing qualifications which are awarded at Level 1 and Level 2. You can find out more about them, including the pass marks, by clicking the links below:-
