It's a nice course to take if you're thinking about getting into transcription. I'm hoping my certification gives some credence to my ability as a transcriptionist. I love to type, so this is definitely the job for me.
I thought the instructional material was helpful and complete, and could help people with virtually any level of experience become familiar with the necessary programs and standards.
I recently completed my general transcribing training through the Institute and feel confident about my abilities as I start my new career. What I really appreciated was the quick response I received when I had questions and the variety of topics the lessons covered. I feel the training I received was the start I needed to succeed in this field.
This affordable general transcription training and certification helped me find transcription work as independent contractor immediately at the Transcription Company where I completed my internship.
The course was very user-friendly. I had no trouble at all with downloading any of the files or going through the pages during the course. I had an issue with one of the parts of the final exam (I had missed one of the special requirements and realized it after submitting the file) and sent a message asking if there was a way I could resubmit the edited file. I got a response back in a timely manner and the person who responded said I could attach the file in a response to her and she would take it to the grading department. My experience with TCI was very positive.
As a stay-at-home mom with four children (4-12yrs.), I was happy to find a program that covered the specifics of transcription, didn't require 13 months to complete and was affordable. Although I had prior transcription work experience (not required), I didn't have the 'certification' that companies require for work. This program for me was a thorough refresher course that covered exactly what was needed to obtain my certification. I was contacted shortly after by a transcription company and am in the process of doing my internship (5hrs of dictation). As a military wife, this line of work will allow me the benefits of continuous work throughout our various relocations. I'll recommend TCI to anyone who asks.
All is going very well after completing the course. After completing the internship successfully, I'm now working full-time for a transcription company and loving it!! I have finally realized a 20+ year dream of being able to work totally from home, on my own schedule! I can't thank you enough for providing this course and the means for me to do that! It's been a wonderful transition!
I've been interested in transcribing for the past couple years. I finally decided to go for it. A few months later, I passed all my tests. I am now a Certified Transcriptionist and I'm so glad I took that first step. I highly recommend TCI to anyone who is serious about transcription.
