Course Introduction

In this course, you will learn about how to become a transcriber as well as why a career as a transcriber can be so rewarding.

Over the past few years, our transcribers averaged £1,000 to £1,200 a month working part-time from home as a general transcriptionist. We want to help others learn how to earn money from home.

Transcription can be a great field for people who have young kids at home but still want to earn money while working at home. Transcription is flexible, well-paying, if you do it the right way, and keeps your job skills fresh.


First, what is transcription?

It’s simply typing out what is said in an audio or video recording.

There are different types of transcription, but this course will only focus on general transcription.

There are many large transcription companies that hire transcriptionists to work with them as a
subcontractor.

In this course, you will learn how to gain a contract with these companies, which is a great way
to get into the transcription field.

This course will prepare you to become a transcriptionist by teaching you about the industry, how to work with audio, and how to transcribe a file.

There will be short practice audio files with answers so that you can get some hands-on experience transcribing a file.

We’ll also go over the process of applying to companies, what it means to work as a subcontractor, how to keep
your contracts, and more.

By the end of the course, you’ll be prepared to start applying to companies.

You may be wondering if this course is for you. This course is designed for people who are serious about learning how to be a transcriptionist. 

You will only get out of this course what you put in. Transcription companies like to see that you have relevant experience, and so it is helpful if you have prior secretarial or other word processing experience.
