With our clerical data entry training program also referred to as “traditional” or “virtual” style of data entry will allow you to provide outsourcing data-entry services to a broad field of prospects.

We are going to take you through the needed training steps to get you qualified to do many of the job tasks that will be presented.

One of the basic points we will get across with this training is understanding the job tasks that are required in many outsourced data-entry jobs.

The purpose of data entry training is to develop the necessary skills to allow you to effectively do your job with little or no problem.

In order for this happen, two things needs to be implemented: the trainer must seek to make all the information clear enough that the trainee can understand it and the trainee must give the trainer total, undivided attention.

The best part is that all of the jobs we provide will allow you to perform the tasks required directly from your home.

What Kind of Training Will You Need?
Data entry training must incorporate tools to help you work with speed, work with accuracy, and methods to help you tune out distractions so concentration will never be affected. (Poor concentration makes speed and accuracy difficult).

Word Processor Training
The most important tool you will need to learn is using a word processor. In this training we will not only give you a free word processor, we will also give you complete training on how to use the word processor for many different types of data-entry assignments you will be doing.

How Do You Strengthen Your Skills?
In order to develop these traits, the data entry training must provide specific drills to help you properly develop the traits. If this is lacking, the training will not produce proper data entry workers.

We also will have you use our tools and guides we provide, which can increase your typing speed and accuracy, and writing skills which will be helpful in your training which is located in our “Resources” section in left side menu.

Now, the best data-entry training in the world will not work if the trainee is not paying strict attention and is not willing to learn this new skill. If these are present, they will make the data-entry training successful, allowing you to have a fruitful career.

We are going to give you the training in the basics of data entry and in how to use the applications through the jobs we will provide.

What is Data Entry?
Data entry is “the process of entering data into a computerized database or spreadsheet. Data entry can be performed by an individual typing at a keyboard or by a machine entering data electronically.”

That is the official definition according to Webopedia. It is a simple process of entering words and graphics in particular formats using special software. It comes down to this: if you can type, you can do data entry as we will show you in this training.

Nature of the Work
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau Labor Statistics reminds us that “Organizations need to process a rapidly growing amount of information. Data entry and information processing workers help ensure the smooth and efficient handling of information.

By keying in text, entering data into a computer, and performing other clerical duties, these workers help organizations keep up with the rapid changes that are characteristic of today’s Information Age.

In addition to the job titles… such as word processors, typists, and data entry keyers—data entry and information processing workers are known by various other titles, including electronic data processors, keypunch technicians, and transcribers.”

The BLS goes on to say that data entry and information processing workers held about 1,425,000 jobs in 2014 and were employed in every sector of the economy; 530,000 were data entry keyers and 1,030,000 were word processors.

Many workers telecommute, working from their homes on personal computers which is then linked to those in the main office. This arrangement enables them to key in material at home while still being able to produce printed copy in their offices.

Overall employment of in-office data entry and information processing workers is projected to decline through 2017. Why? Although word processors, typists, and data entry keyers are all affected by productivity gains stemming from organizational restructuring and the implementation of new technologies, projected growth differs among these workers.

Employment of word processors and typists is expected to decline because of the proliferation of personal computers, which allows other workers to perform duties formerly assigned to word processors and typists… Moreover, as telecommunications technology improves, many organizations will increasingly take advantage of computer networks that allow data to be transmitted electronically… These networks will permit more data to be entered automatically into computers, reducing the demand for in-office data entry keyers.

What was just mentioned is FACT! directly from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau Labor.

Simply put, with the popularity of home computers, increasing Internet connection speeds, and basic word processing knowledge, the in-office worker will decline, as the work-from-home data processor will increase. You will be able to take advantage of this opportunity as a work-from-home data processor.

We will list the most current jobs, and assignments where you might use your new data entry skills, after you have completed the training course we provide.

How much can a work-from-home word processor make?
Median annual earnings of work-from-home word processors and typists in December 2014 were $37,375. The middle 50 percent earned between $29,850 and $44,900.

The lowest 10 percent earned less than $21,960, while the highest 10 percent earned more than $76,190. The salaries of these workers vary by industry and by region as well as dedication to the job tasks.

Many home typist do not spend more then four hours per day, five days a week working from home. If you were to work more hours per day you would make more money. Expect on a beginner level to make $10 per hour on average, and on an advance level about $18-$25+ per hour.

Data-Entry Training Outline
We are going to break the training down into sections. We will start off by explaining the different types of data entry projects, the equipment and software needed, and then focus on the most popular types of data entry, and training you in these popular types of data entry formats.

Our goal is to get you a complete understanding of what word processing is, and how to use the software designed to perform the assignments. As we do this we will also teach you the popular terminology that you will need to know for better understanding this work.
