Each potential contractor must pass a thorough federal, state and county background check before moving forward in our Freelancer Qualification Program.
We process 22,000 transcripts a month and constantly have new work coming in. Thanks to this steady stream of business, we are looking for independent transcriptionists who who can consistently provide transcription services Monday through Friday, approximately four to six hours each day.
Even if you are an experienced transcriptionist, our clients require a unique and specific type of verbatim transcription. For that reason, all our prospective transcription partners must participate in our online Freelancer Qualification Program before they have the ability to transcribe for our clients.
The program will explain client specifications and then use practice transcripts to make sure you’re able to meet those specifications. (Please note that completion of the Freelancer Qualification Program does not guarantee a contract offer will be extended.)
Contracts will be extended to transcriptionists based on:
- The quality of your practice transcripts.
- The ability to meet deadlines during the Freelancer Qualification Program.
To help ensure the high level of security that our client’s require, we use a state of the art document processing system that encrypts all incoming and outgoing file transfers. As part of this process, each transcriptionist must have a user license to access our system, download audios, and submit completed transcripts.
This software license is installed on your computer by Transcription Express. To run the program, your computer must be compatible with Windows 7 Professional, Windows 8 Professional or Windows 10 Professional.
To determine whether you’re eligible to enter our Freelancer Qualification Program, there are four tests you’ll need to complete:
- A typing test (must type 60 words per minute at 90% accuracy)
- A homonym test
- A spelling test
- A work-at-home compatibility test
To take these tests, you just need to register on our training site. The first time you visit, it will ask you to choose a username/password before taking you to the testing area. Once you sign up you have 24 hours to complete each test if you want to be considered for an interview.
