In an effort to improve the potential of our MTs' work skills,
Transam Associates has developed a Training Program. This program
takes the place of our former Internship and more accurately describes
the relationship in this hands-on learning experience. The Training
Program is designed to help prepare individuals to improve their
work capabilities. Valuable information and guidance is provided
to assist the Trainee in their professional development. It is a
method for coaching an individual to enhance their personal and
professional excellence. Trainees learn computer and transcription
skills, and gain the experience needed. The Training Program provides
objective and positive feedback on ways to improve proficiency and
When you enter the tuition FREE Training
Program a Personal Trainer will be assigned to you. The Personal
Trainer will design a program specifically for you based on your
background, experience, training and abilities. Within the personal
web site created just for you, your Personal Trainer can communicate
with you live while you are transcribing. Along with the hands-on
transcription, your Trainer evaluates your progress, and may authorize
FREE to you courses
from the School of Medical Transcription, depending upon which areas
you need strengthening. Normally each course’s tuition
is $370, but you will be given the courses suggested by your
Personal Trainer FREE
of charge to you. Your investment in these courses will only be
the textbooks and special Transam software. In addition
Transam picks up the cost in tuition for your personal training
program and any courses from the School of Medical Transcription
that your Personal Trainer recommends. Special books and software purchase is required
to do the training and later the actual transcription work from
Purpose of the Program
The purpose of the program is career guidance and helping the Trainee
gain skills, knowledge, and abilities the Trainee wants to possess.
This program helps focus career direction, builds confidence and
encourages initiative, experimentation, and risk-taking.
We Give you the Experience Needed to Start Making Money
The Training Program helps the MT set up the equipment needed and
gain practice and knowledge in order to establish his/her independent
contracting business. Special software is required.
The Training Program is the step between your academic training
in medical transcription and an actual professional MT position.
It gives you the hands-on experience in preparing yourself for the
profession of medical transcription.
Companies and private practice physicians usually hire those who
have experience, and have gained the skill and talent in transcribing
and doing research for accurate reports. At first it takes time,
like putting a jigsaw puzzle together, to look up spellings of words
to see if they match with what you think you are hearing. The process
is fun and rewarding as you gain mastery over what you hear, and
what you type. The professional MT becomes so proficient that she/he
is able to recognize errors in a physician's dictation.
Some use this program to sharpen their skills, while others use
it to give them the required experience demanded by medical transcription
companies. Either way, this challenging and fun program helps prepare
you for your professional career working for Transam Associates,
another MT company of your choice, or as an independent contractor.
The Training package gives you the basic tools for success.

Recent e-mail letters and testimonials regarding The Training
I just finished reading the newsletter...It is fabulous! I so appreciated
the prayer, Cherry's Psalm 119 letter, poem, and the lighter side
portion. Transam Associates is such a blessing in my life. Thank you and
Alan for allowing people like myself to be part of your company.
You all are truly a Godsend! I prayed about my future in medical
transcribing back in July of this year, and very soon after that,
God showed me Transam Associates. I am very close to finishing the Training
Program and am so excited about what the future holds for me working
real time with Transam Associates. God is so good!!
Please keep up the good work! I pray for you and Alan to be so
blessed in your endeavors, and I also pray for this company to prosper
beyond anything you could have dreamed of (Ephesians 3:20).
God Bless You,

Hi. Just wanted you to know my new e-mail account is setup. I also
wanted to say thank you for all of the time and effort you have
invested in me to help me to become a professional MT working for
Trans Am. I sincerely appreciate everything that you have done for
me, and tolerated from me these past two years. I keep both of you
personally, and the Transam Associates family in my prayers daily. Thank
you. Have a happy and blessed year.

Dear Alan and Linda:
I just wanted to let you know that through the training I have received
through your company I have been able to seek and be offered employment
with a couple of MT services that does hospital work. I have been
transcribing ER and discharge reports.
If it were not for the training that I have received thus far, I
certainly would not have been able to pass their tests (which seem
Should there be anything that you do not have time to do, I will
be more than happy to assist you.
Always a fellow MT continuing to learn,
R. Reed, MT intern and Trainee, Reno, NV
I am so excited to be starting working as a medical transcriptionist.
Thanks for all of the help and encouragement. Anne is the greatest.
She is a fantastic editor. You have a great asset in her being on
your team. You have a great program for MT.
I will start working on getting things going. Thanks again. I am
happy to be working with you and Alan and your great team of professionals.
Talk to you soon.
Carol (Finished Basic Academics, The Training Program, and now
a Professional for Trans Am).
This is from C. Orth. I was an intern (Trainee) of yours just
a few months ago. I am writing to thank you once again for the tremendous
opportunity you gave me through Transam Associates. When I spent all the
money that I did to become an intern (for the Scribe, and also I
spent money on books and supplies, etc.), I was scared that I was
doing the wrong thing. It was the best thing I ever could have done.
Today I accepted a position with a large group here in Evansville,
Indiana as a full-time medical transcriptionist. I was offered the
job on the spot. I would not have been able to transcribe the VERY
EASY test they gave me without the experience I gleaned from Transam Associates. The test was only VERY EASY because of the difficult transcription
I did while a Trainee with you.
Again, thanks so much. I am very appreciative of the opportunity
I had with you, and I wanted to let you know.
Throughout my introduction to Transam Associates I have been in
contact with your husband, Alan, only. I wish to take this moment
to introduce myself and to thank you for the outstanding opportunity
that your company is giving me.
I have been reading the newsletters that I downloaded with my other
files. I have been constantly amazed at the comprehensive information
provided in them. Equally impressive was the compassion that you
showed in all of them. You managed to add a human interest to an
otherwise technical composition. You and your husband must be wonderful
people and I wish to thank you, not only for giving me an opportunity
which no one else was willing to give, but also for enabling me
to work with such compassionate people as you and Alan.
God Bless You!
I just want to tell you "thank you" again for the time
you spent with me on
the telephone today. I really appreciate what you taught me today.

C. Brandt (Became a Professional MT for Trans Am)
I have been offered a full time position with Health Services here
with the City of Hamilton. At this time I find it will be too much
to continue at Trans Am with having a full-time job and continuing
to take courses.
I want to thank you for all of your help and support. I learned
more than I would have anywhere else I'm sure, not only with regards
to Medical Terminology, but you taught me a great deal of computer
skills that I had never used before. It has been a pleasure working
Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you again for running such
a wonderful company. I am now on Group 5 of the Training Program,
and I am thrilled with everything. After finishing my MT course
this past winter, I was anxious to get back into the swing of things.
Your editor has been extremely helpful in answering all of my questions.
Her feedback is great! I have included a picture of our son, Jacob.
Because of Trans Am, I am able to stay at home with him and for
that I can't thank you enough. He is our miracle and a dream come
true. I also wanted to let you know that I ordered Stedman's online
dictionary, and it is great! I am still checking out all of its
features, but I can tell it is going to be a tremendous help to
me once I start working. Don't forget to tell the others of the
web site, www.stedmans.com.
