About Us | Transcription Certification Institute or TCI

Our Story

Transcription Certification Institute (TCI) was launched in November 2008 to address the shortage of trained work-from-home (WFH) transcriptionists. The need for transcription services had outgrown the supply of qualified WFH transcriptionists when organized transcription companies like Rev, GMR Transcription, Transcribe Me, and several others were formed to address the growing demand. TCI founder organized a team consisting of a leading transcription company, experienced transcriptionists, proofreaders, and transcription supervisors. Then tasked them to develop a self-paced virtual transcription training program that anyone looking to become a transcriptionist from any part of the world can learn how to transcribe.

Since its founding, TCI has revised the courses many times and added many features to address the latest requirements of the transcription marketplace and has evolved into a transcription platform that offers all transcription needs for transcriptionists and transcription companies. We continue to evolve to address the needs of the transcription industry, intending to transform this platform such that transcriptionists and transcription companies can find all transcription-related information, services, and products by visiting the TCI website.

Following is a snapshot of the capabilities of the TCI transcription platform:
