Medical Transcription - Frequently Asked Questions

Your questions answered

Do I have to start my course on the start date?

No. Once enrolled, you’ll receive access to the learning platform and can familiarise yourself through the orientation. Once the start date lapses you will gain access to two lessons a week, for six weeks. You’ll then get an extra 2 weeks at the end to complete your final exam. You can study at your own pace; however we do recommend that you complete each lesson within two weeks of its release so that you manage to complete the course within the 8 week access period.

How long will it take to process my enrolment after I’ve enrolled?

There are no processing times, so you can access your learning platform immediately! If your course has not started yet, you can go through the orientation and familiarise yourself with the learning platform. Your enrolment confirmation email will provide all of these details.

What kind of assignments will I have to complete?

You will complete multiple choice quizzes, short answer questions and summary exams/test(s) which will confirm your understanding of the subject.

What do others think?

‘I have been transcribing workers' compensation medical-legal reports for years. This course was an eye opener into what I lacked, what is missing in my reports, and my level of competence. I got busy and copied mountains of pertinent information to be studied again and again at my leisure so I can upgrade my skills. I have had a secret desire to work as a transcriptionist for a hospital or the County Medical Bureau, but I am <br />nowhere near prepared. This course was of immense value in helping me assess my current level of competence. I plan to practice transcribing reports over and over again. Thanks so much for the templates. I cannot express enough how valuable this course was for me.’
