Typing classes are provided by libraries, such as the City of Santa Ana Public Library, which features lessons and games to improve typing skills. Local governments, community colleges and community organizations also offer typing classes.

Community colleges, such as Housatonic Community College in Bridgeport, Connecticut, offer computer-based typing classes. HCC students learn to type by touch, memorizing both the alpha and numeric keys, during two semesters of classes. Community centers also offer typing classes; the Westside Community Center in Huntsville, Alabama, offers computer-based typing classes to youths and adults.

Local government agencies provide typing classes as part of their workforce development programs, such as the Lincoln, Nebraska, Urban Development Department. Its One Stop Career Center assesses workers’ typing skills and provides classes to help improve them.
