As litigation continues to rise nationwide and the technology used to capture testimony evolves, there is a tremendous need for legal transcribers.

Legal transcriptionists generally work remotely on contract or staff for court reporting agencies or court systems.

This course thoroughly prepares you for AAERT's (American Association of Electronic Reporters and Transcribers) national certification, CET (Certified Electronic Transcriber) exam.
