Keyboarding is for the beginner as well as for the individual who has learned the keyboard but wishes to improve his or her technique. Efficiency and speed are emphasized in specially designed exercises. Students also learn how to type copy in the most commonly used formats. As part of the focus on accuracy, students are expected to recognize and correct common errors in mechanics and grammar. Students must have access to a computer or typewriter to complete this subject.

In completing Keyboarding students demonstrate mastery of basic keystrokes and keystroke combinations in timed and untimed exercises. Assignments become increasingly complex as students progress in the course until by the end students are producing business letters and reports and formatting tables.

There are 7 examinations in Keyboarding.
