CanScribe — Misinformation
I went to CanScribe and after what has been done to me, i now have to let everyone out there know the truth behind this institution. First off, they are very good at selling! They will they you feel as if you have chosen the best school hands down and will tell you that they are associated with one of the biggest canadian transcription companies, Accentus, and thus, if you get high marks, you will most likely get hired by Accentus. After what i read about Accentus, the plethora of complaints and such really prompted me to speak out about this school and how it now seems to me that both CanScribe and Accentus have something going on that is most disturbing. When i chose this course, i thought about the working from home advantage and how that alone would save me on gas, money, clothes, etc. The more i got into the course, the more i realized that the way the transcription part was done was completely wrong. The first part of the course was easy as pie, then the transcription part happened and there was literally no rhyme or reason whatsoever! It was complete madness! The dictations were so hard that even one of my instructors could not do a couple of them, yet as a student, i was expected to do it! It was so discouraging and so hard, that several times, myself and my friends wanted to throw in the towel. Unfortunately, Canscribe is the MOST EXPENSIVE online school for medical transcription out there, so i really didn't feel like losing my money and decided to keep going. I finally graduated and so far, all of the companies that have interviewed me were just plain awful, if it wasn't the work, it was the rate of pay! This is not a career where you are going to make money, get that out of your head right now! I have a friend who was actually 'blacklisted' by this company because of a huge misunderstanding, she finally got a good job at a hospital and i guess that's where you are most likely to get something that makes sense (they even went as far as to give her a bad reference! and she paid for this course, they have no right doing this!). My opinion, keep it local! Go to a local college and you'll be much better off!
