Why Train With Us...

Come and tell us where you want to be, and we can work with you to get you there!

Your career is understandably of the utmost importance to you, but sadly, there is now a lot of competition out there for the jobs you want.  This means that you need your accomplishments to stand out from the crowd!

Pitman Training can help you do this by providing you with demonstrable skills, to help you convince future recruiters that you are their obvious choice!

We provide training for the office environment, enabling you to gain relevant in-demand skills and knowledge, at times and at a pace to suit you. You progress at your own speed, not that set for a class, and focus your time where you choose.

All of our courses enable you to gain a Pitman Training certificate, as proof of your new competencies and abilities.

Our Training Centre

We are located above Starbucks. Come up the stairs from the Duke Street entrance (opposite the Downtown cafe). We share space with Manx Professional & Educational Services (MPES), the foremost accountancy, tax and professional training company on the island, and you will meet their students around the building.

The training room/CBE room is on the first floor. It contains six workstations, all linked to the server, to allow the maximum flexibility of use.

You will very quickly become familiar to our style of training, and may be surprised at how independently you can study, after only a few lessons! However; should you require guidance, there is always someone on hand. During the week day, this is likely to be Sheila. Evenings and weekends, it will be Anne. If your availability is limited, let us know (as the building is often open in the evenings).

If you are in for a long day, you will find everything you need for your lunch, from a microwave, to a plate in the kitchens. There are two kitchens, offering free tea, coffee etc., and seating areas around the building (for a change of scenery).

Being in the town centre, we are also surrounded by all of the town's wide variety of shops.

Our range of training courses in Douglas is extensive and includes PA Courses, Excel and Admin Courses, Pitman's Online English CoursesMinute Taking, Receptionist and Medical Receptionist Courses with City & Guilds/AMSPAR, AAT Accounting & AAT Bookkeeping and the ECDL online (European Computer Driving Licence) courses.

Keyboard skills and touch-typing are the foundations of computer literacy and confidence – fast, accurate typing and number input can revolutionise your experience at work and ensure you’re a highly productive member of any team. Our training centre in Douglas offers CPD accredited Speedwriting and Shorthand Courses, as well as Typaz Speed Typing Courses, Touch Typing, Teeline Shorthand and Shorthand Fast Courses.
