Top Transcribers Academy is the training Division of Top Transcriptions which has been in the Transcription Services arena for over 15 years. We have coached and guided many transcribers and proofreaders over the years in getting their skills up to a level where they are in demand in the transcription industry. We understand what transcription companies are looking for in a transcriber - from the initial application that a transcriber makes for employment to what is required from them in their transcribing and proofing roles.
Transcribing has always been an occupation that is primarily home-based. In recent years working from home has become the preferred option for many people and it's no surprise that people have explored this option to earn a living.
The difficulty many people face in trying to get a transcribing job is that they don't have specific transcribing skills or qualifications. This is where we come in.
The Complete Transcriber Handbook
Once you have signed up to do the course, we will e-mail you the Complete Transcriber Handbook. This handbook will contain all the information necessary to complete the theoretical side of the course as well as Tips on equipment, software, setup and even looking for a job.
We will send you a link to the multiple-choice Assessment Sheets that cover the essential information that a transcriber needs to know. After going through the Complete Transcriber Handbook you can complete the assessments online. Whilst there is a pass mark required for the Theory side of the course, you can review and re-submit your answers as often as you wish to achieve the pass mark, and as such there is no reason not to pass the Theory Section.
Practical Transcribing Exercises
The next section is the Practical Transcribing Exercises.
The Complete Transcriber Handbook contains tips and links to getting yourself set up to begin transcribing.
We will send you three audio with templates to go with each audio.
You will transcribe these audios on the templates provided and these transcriptions will cover Clean Verbatim, Full Verbatim, and Time Stamps. You will have the opportunity to apply some of the theories that you have learnt, such as dealing with inaudible audio, cross-talk, interruptions, and proofreading your work.
Our Proofreaders will assess your transcripts and return them to you with "Track Changes Showing" (i.e. your corrections will be visible in colour so you can see where you went wrong).
There is no pass mark for the transcribing that you do - you will simply receive your corrected transcripts for you to use for self-improvement.
We will mail you your Top Transcribers Certificate on completion of the course.

The cost of the course is R490.00.
