Welcome to our Academy!

Learn to Transcribe has passed rigorous accreditation standards of the American Association of Electronic Reporters and Transcribers and is an official AAERT approved school that provides top quality education.

This online course was prepared by our expert staff of seasoned court reporters and legal transcriptionists who have many decades of experience and knowledge to share with you.

The foundational course covers most everything you will encounter to produce transcripts for legal proceedings in the United States.

This is not a course for legal secretarial or paralegal work but, rather, how to properly create verbatim transcripts of depositions, hearings, courtroom trials, arbitrations, and other related proceedings involving sworn testimony.






Hi! I'm Linda Wilson ..

As your instructor, I will begin by saying that I am a Certified Stenographic Court Reporter for many years and hold a Notary Public commission. My CCR certification is recognized by the American Association of Electronic Reporters and Transcribers as someone having the training and credentials to instruct students on how to properly create legal transcripts.

Although modest in talking about myself, just know that I have decades of experience creating transcripts of sworn testimony in criminal and civil matters, along with much teaching experience.

I am anxious to help you have an amazing and potentially lucrative career. Let's do this!
