How It Works

Step 1

Sign up and Register: As soon as you register, you can access your lessons and begin right away.

Step 2

Read, Review, and Study Each Lesson: Take the quiz at the end of each lesson; you can always retake it if you don’t do well the first time. These quizzes will help you prepare for the final exams.

Step 3

About the Final Exams: This final step consists of transcribing 7 different audio files accurately. If you pass with a qualifying score, you will be emailed a copy of your certificate of completion, and you will also receive the original via USPS after you pay a $19.99 fee.

Once you pass the program with a final qualifying score, you will receive your certificate of completion. With a qualifying final grade, you will also be eligible for an internship with a reputable transcription company to gain valuable, real experience with real projects.
