About Stenography and Course Contents

Shorthand is an abbreviated symbolic writing method that increases speed and brevity of writing as compared to a normal method of writing a language. The process of writing in shorthand is called Stenography.

Equip yourself with specialised SKILLS – HIGH SPEED WRITING and TYPWRITING!

STENOGRAPHY is a combination of two Courses – SHORTHAND and TYPEWRITING! In fact the two go hand-in-hand, because after the Shorthand writer takes down the dictation, the matter is then transcribed directly on to a word-processor.

Knowledge of these two skills is is probably the most indispensable skill for a Secretary, Personal Assistant or Stenographer. People with good Stenography skills are in demand and are sought after by many professional organisations, both large and small. A shorthand qualification is also essential for entering into or getting promotions in many government and private sector jobs.

Shorthand is an interesting and enjoyable skill to learn. It is a writing technique that involves using signs instead of words so that a competent writer can take down more than 100 words per minute (wpm) or more, from a spoken dictation or a speech. The shorthand notes are then transcribed onto a Computer.

A good Typist normally attains speeds of around 40 wpm, but speeds on  a computer keyboard can easily exceed 60+ words a minute.
