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 course 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. During the internship, you will be asked to commit to transcribing up to 5 hours of recorded audio. There is a possible opportunity for employment after your internship period ends.
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 for.
Once the internship has been completed, the transcription company will provide a letter of completion and agrees 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.
