Keyboarding Skill Competency Recommendations

Keyboarding Skill Competency Recommendations

Welcome! We are excited that you have chosen to focus your studies in business. The programs we offer have been developed and designed to provide program majors with essential skills and competencies needed to be successfully employed in the business community.

Keyboarding and 10-key competencies are two of the skills our Advisory Committee, consisting of local business professionals, and the State-Wide Administrative Office Professionals (AOP) Consortium, have identified as essential. We highly recommend that students go to www.typing.com and take their free online tests to evaluate their keyboarding skill level. To evaluate your 10-key skill level go to official-typing-test.com/

If you have tested below 35 words per minute, we recommend you complete the free typing lessons at www.typing.com.

The Administrative Office Professional degree requires students to increase their typing and 10-key skills throughout the program eventually accurately typing 45 words per minute and keying 220 strokes per minute.
