Description

Created/Taught by a 17-Year Active Transcriptionist – Beginner, More Advanced, Learn Skills to Become a Transcriptionist

Learn from an Experienced Transcriptionist Herself:

As an experienced at-home transcriptionist for over 17 years, I have a very good handle on what is required to be an excellent transcriptionist,  based out of your home, and be successful at it.  I got into this field by taking a chance.  I made a lot of mistakes along the way, but survived, even working as a transcriptionist now.  After being asked so often how I got into this work, I decided to make a course and lay it out, making it more simple for you to start than it was for me.

Training or Not, Step-by-Step, This is for You:

This transcription course is designed for those who want to transcribe from home, with or without prior training, and don’t know where to begin.  Training as a transcriptionist is a focus of this course, as well the unique set-up and needs when working from home in this field.  I want you to have all the groundwork so you can have more confidence when you look for work.

What You Will Learn:

  • Beginnings and Setting Up Your Office: This course will start with a transcription definition and then moves into direction on setting up your home office, including detailed information on what equipment and software you will need specifically for transcription work.   Transcription headphones, transcription software, and the transcriptionist foot pedal are specifically discussed.

  • Training in Several Transcription Styles, With Guidance, and Then On Your Own:  With this foundation set, we then move into training in transcription itself.  Several styles of transcription will be worked with.  You will be able to listen to audio, and see how it is transcribed.  After training in each type of transcription, you will have the opportunity to transcribe yourself with provided audios, as well as results documents to compare against.

  • Where to Locate Transcription Work:  Finally, with your skills established and your office working well, it is time to locate work.  The course will guide you in updating your resume, and then in locating opportunities for transcription jobs both online, and locally.

This Course is a Fit for Many:

If you would like to work in general transcription, you will be prepared after this course.  If you would like to work in medical transcription or legal transcription, this would be your starter course to prepare your office and train in the transcription skills that all transcriptionists require.  This is transcription for beginners, but it could also be a refresher course for those with some experience already.  So, for general transcription, and then, if you like, moving into a medical transcription course or legal transcription course later, this course is the right place for you to begin.  If you conducted a search for ” audio transcription “, this course will meet your needs, as well.

When the Course is Complete:

Step-by-step this course will build your transcription skills, enabling you to make income from your home.  You will also be given the knowledge needed to possibly turn it into a full-time endeavor.  I look forward to seeing you inside the class!

You will learn

Complete the transcription for “Grocery Store” under Lesson 8 and upload your finished document here.  (I have attached the audio here again for your convenience).  This transcription will not be graded, as this is the start of your transcription training.  Rather, take pride in completing the transcription by posting it here.  No matter what, just do your best!  :)
