Certification in Transcription

A lot of our students ask us, ‘Why do we need a certification in general transcription?” Here’s what we answer.

  1. You need to show off your expertise. Remember, Transcription Certification Institute is an institute that enjoys the trust of leading general transcription companies in the US and Canada. If your resume or business carries our certification it acquires credibility.
  2. This course teaches you more than general transcription. You learn the ins and outs and requirements of the transcription industry. This helps you if you plan to start your own business.
  3. This is a PLUS factor. The guaranteed internship offer of this transcription course gives you a hands on experience that you would not get otherwise. This offer by itself should make you grab the course.
