Pitman Training

Shorthand Faster

Course Outline

Brought to you by Pitman Training, the master of shorthand, this practical and intensive course is designed for people wishing to improve existing Teeline shorthand skills as speedily as possible.

After just eight hours or so, you’ll have enhanced your shorthand sufficiently to achieve a good working standard. Before you start, you’ll need to have an ability to write Teeline shorthand at around 80 wpm, but on completion, you will have honed your skills and speeds to attain up to 120 words per minute.

The course contains dictation material ranging between 80 and 120 wpm, key shorthand outlines, a range of practical exercises and keys to transcribed passages.

In line with all our courses, your training will be flexible, giving you the freedom to learn when it suits you. For those times when you need support, our experienced course advisors will always be on hand. You will also take away a workbook as handy reference guide when your course is complete and naturally, you’ll have the Pitman Training name on your CV and Certificate, both of which are highly respected by employers.


This course is for anyone who already uses the Teeline Shorthand system to a good level but want to progress their skills even further to an expert level.
