Internship Program for Transcriptionists (offered to students who reside in the US only)
Win-win program for TCI graduates and transcription companies
Once you've passed the course with a final score above 80, you can get practical experience by doing an unpaid internship for a transcription company. As a transcription intern, you will gain valuable industry experience. You need to transcribe up to 5 hours of recorded audio during your internship. There is a possible opportunity for employment after your internship period ends.
* Our internship is not available to people located in California and transcription companies may not be hiring people located in California due to Assembly Bill 5.
Here’s how it works:
The Transcription Certification Institute has a list of transcription companies interested in hiring TCI graduates as interns.
Transcriptionists who pass the course will automatically be eligible to qualify for an internship opportunity.
Interns are required to commit to transcribing up to five hours of recorded audio.
Interns are required to meet the existing standards of the transcription company that they are interning with.
Once the internship has been completed, the transcription company will provide a completion letter and agree to be a reference for the transcriptionist.
Transcriptionists are not required to work for the transcription company after the internship completion.
The transcription company is not committing any future work after the internship completion.

The internship allows TCI graduates to gain real-world experience by transcribing files for real clients. This will help our graduates gain work experience and a reference to help them establish a career in transcription.
