Frequently Asked Questions

On this page, you can find some frequently asked questions on TypingArena, our typing test tool. If you have a question not mentioned here, please send them here.

How many times can I take a certification?

You can take the certification as many times you want, in as many languages as you want. You will have the choice to share or not the results with whomever you will want, so you can keep private some results while publishing others. Please note, however, that every certification (in one given language) will require you to buy a certification credit.

Why do I have to pay for a certification?

In order to certify your skills, you will have to pay a small fee in order to take the competition. This covers our costs, and also proves that this certification is taken only by people that really want to enrich their Curriculum Vitae.

Why do I have to pay as a teacher?

Well, actually you don't: we have a free plan to start with, with which you can start looking at the possibilities and manage up to 5 students for a limited period.

After that, you will have to upgrade to a premium account that you can choose depending on your needs. This ensures that you will receive our premium support in case of problems, and you will have access to all the features of the website for one year (after which you can renew, of course, otherwise your account will become read-only).

What will I get with a certification?

After paying, you will be able to take one (1) competition in a language of your choice (among those supported by this website). You will be able to take only one (1) test for the given certification, in order to prevent cheating or getting you used to the text you will be asked to type: this is a measure used to make the certification a real assessment of your typing skills.

What kind of payments do you accept?

We accept payments through all major credit cards, throughout PayPal.

Are payments safe?

Payments are made in SSL mode, and we never receive your credit card details, which only PayPal can see.

How can I delete my account?

We respect your privacy: you can delete your account from following the links from your profile page. We will be always glad to have you back.
