In September Pitman Training changed the style and functionality of their learning portal. As a user of their from before this change, I much preferred the older style. The newer style is slow and very impractical - you only have about a 1/4 of the workspace available to work with your document, and you have to constantly switch between tabs t...

I have more than one answer about the Wordpress course with Pitman Training. - Lets start with the good ones. Being an online couse gives great flexibility and I found very helpfull going in their office to study sometimes so I would not get distracted from house works at home. Once I received the certification I found a new job within 1 mon...

I completed the Diploma in just under a year. I attended the college one day a week where business commitments allowed. I found the course very interesting especially the advanced versions of Word, and Excel. I also studied payroll as this was a pre-requisite by my employer which I really enjoyed and this helped me to provide cover for my com...

When I moved to London I had 5 years experience with Vodafone back home, however when I started looking for a job I found out that my skills are out of date, my English – not corporate enough and the lack of experience in the UK did not help as well. I had 2 children already and to find a suitable course for me was tough, however I wanted to get...

I chose the Secretarial Diploma because I wanted to improve my IT skills and it seemed like a good option while in full time employment, as you can take your time and study during the evening or the weekend. It is an excellent training centre and it gave me the confidence to apply for jobs which I may not have applied for before I did the cours...

When I signed up to do the Executive Pa Diploma, I knew that there were no guarantees as to where this was going to lead. My Pitman skills not only helped me to work faster and smarter and gain confidence that I needed. This also benefited my company when I put myself forward for an Assistant Pa role. I not only became a more valuable employee t...

I am now a Senior Document Controller managing 3 multi-million pound high specification developments and providing support to 4 directors, with a promotion next ...

I came to Pitman's when I had just started University and was unsure about the course I was studying. So many people had told me about Pitman's and the wide range of courses they offer, including my grandma who took the typing course in the 1950s; therefore I rushed to make an appointment with the team. I was sold immediately. The Executive PA D...

The pace at which you can work makes it enjoyable and easy to learn. Since starting nearly two months ago, I have already studied a lot of new skills which I am now using in my current job. Starting my Executive PA Diploma was the best decision I have made!
Executive PA CoursesFor me the best part of this Executive PA Course was the fact that I could study whenever I needed. This made it very convenient as I have two jobs. I have also enjoyed studying Microsoft Office courses and have found them very useful and practical. Thank you to all the staff who have been very helpful and friendly.
Keyboard IllustratorCompleting the Pitman Training Typaz course has improved my efficiency at work giving me so much more confidence at the same time. The skill is immensely useful in my job. Typaz is a wonderful programme, allowed me to learn at my own speed, in my free time. It was very convenient, I practiced on regular basis and I was su...

Pitman gives you flexibility in your training. You can study at your own convenience. There is more content than your typical training course.
All the training team were consistently helpful, informative and friendly during my time with Pitman Training, and have made the whole experience a great deal easier and more fun. Audio Transcription was much easier to get to grips with than I thought, and it was a nice way to end the course. I can’t thank you all enough, it’s been a pleas...

Pitman Training has helped me in many ways. One thing I am most proud of is being able to type without looking at the keyboard. When I started I never thought that it would be possible. Now I can close my eyes, you can turn the light off and I would still manage to write a sentence down and I think that’s amazing. It gives you a wonderful feelin...

1. What was your favourite course? Although it is hard to select one since all courses equip you with invaluable practical skills, I would say Microsoft Excel 2010 Expert. It is a powerful tool for data management and analysis, trends forecasting, data interactivity and many other operations important for every business, which is why being an...

Before I came here, I wasn’t very confident with computers, but now thanks to Pitman, I feel much more confident. The Trainers are very helpful and friendly, the centre was a good environment in study in and the materials were amazing.
I find the method of learning highly usable and enjoy coming into the centre to study for my Executive PA Diploma. I like the learning environment and the trainers are always friendly, helpful and easy to talk to. I definitely feel positive about my course and the training I receive

I am really enjoying this Executive PA course because the lessons are easy to follow and interesting as I’m learning things I’ve never done before. The best thing about the course is the trainers who are always friendly and willing to help.

I studied the Executive PA Course (Diploma Level) at Pitman Training in Notting Hill, and I found the course very flexible and convenient, as I could fit it easily around work. The training team were friendly and helpful, and the study environment was comfortable.
The trainers are extremely helpful and friendly, and respond so quickly if you ever get stuck. I found learning mail merge in the Microsoft Word Expert module particularly useful, and I loved the Events Management module – a very valuable way to understand how to run events effectively. I also really appreciated how well Access was broken down –...

Adam was completely professional, confident and positive – a great combination of traits in a tutor who covered everything I wanted to know and everything that I didn’t realise I needed! I felt totally inspired; I had become stuck emotionally in my role and this course has completely reignited my passion and motivation. The course provided such ...
