Established in 1870, by Sir Isaac Pitman, Pitman Training began with one shorthand school. Today Pitman Training is unique in being not only the oldest and longest running independent training company, but also for having the largest independent UK network of training centres. We are also represented internationally in many overseas countries.

In Scotland, Pitman Training has been around since 1987 when the Edinburgh centre was opened by Fran and Tom Maclean. Starting with shorthand and moving onto typewriters, before the invention of the PC as we know it, our training business has come a long way from those early days.

We quickly established a fantastic reputation for quality courses and qualifications with employers all over Scotland and our range of courses continues to grow. Today we have centres in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dumfries, Forres and Inverness along with a fantastic distance learning program that allows even the most remote areas of Scotland access to our courses.

Our unique training system allows you to train at times and a pace that suits you, so no more feeling left behind in the class or feeling like you are being held up. Training can be taken in one of our centres or from home using our distance learning software during which you will receive the support of our fully qualified Training Supervisors who have years of experience in training and supporting individuals through their courses.

We don’t just want to put you on any course, we want to make sure that the course you take is the right one for you and meets all your needs. Therefore when you get in touch with us one of our highly experienced Course Advisors will be able to discuss what you are looking to gain from your training and guide you to the right course. This ensures you get the most benefit from your studies and you will soon see the results leading to your goals.

Whether you are an individual looking to update your skills for a new or current position, just wanting to learn a bit more about computing or are an organisation looking to train your staff then we have the right course for you.

We look forward to hearing from you so please if you have any questions about our courses or other opportunities please either call us now or complete our Quick Enquiry form which you will find on the side.
