Mondae99 ... Fantastic ... just got my Dell ergonomic keyboard and it's a must have. Easy to get used to and really helps the hands out. Great fast key action (which I was looking for). Before you make a bid at eBau, email me. I'll let you know if it is someone I've dealt with and the price and machine are right. Glad to share and help. My email is charro@home.com.

HI THERE! I TOO AM NEW TO THE MT WORLD. I AM AN AT HOME MOM WHO IS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO HELP OUR INCOME. MY HUSBANDS WORK HOURS DO NOT GIVE ME THE TIME FOR A FULL OR PART TIME JOB. I CURRENTLY WORK AS A UNITL SECRETARY IN A CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL BUT ONLY ON EVERY OTHER WEEKEND. I GUESS MY QUESTION IS WHERE DO I LOOK TO GET INFO. ON MT CORRESPONDANCE SCHOOLS? I HAVE READ MANY OF THE HELPFUL RESPONSES HERE ON THE BOARD BUT THE ABBREVIATIONS LEAVE ME LOST. DO I JUST TYPE THOSE INTO A SEARCH AND FIND THEM? MY OTHER QUESTION IS REGARDING JOBS. I TOO HAVE READ THAT MOST PLACES REQUIRE AT LEAST A YEAR OF IN OFFICE EXPERIENCE AND THAT SIMPLY IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR ME. WILL I BE ABLE TO FIND A JOB OUT THERE W/ OUT IN OFFICE EXPERIENCE? I AM SO GLAD I FOUND THIS WEB SITE, IT IS SENDING ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

Hi! I have heard of MediTec, and at first, i was ready to sign up with them, because of their low cost ($499). I looked and looked and i couldn't see anywhere on there, that they are accredited, or any such thing. They also stress, that they don't do job placement and such. I am still considering it, because of the cost, but i'm not sure how much it will help me in the future.
Does anyone know why there is such a difference in prices? Andrews is $3800, and M Tec is like $2500. Who can afford this???
Thanks

Meditech's "Personal Edge" training programs are less expensive for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that they are all "home-study" courses, so there is no overhead for the training institution. I would suggest you check out the Frequently Asked Questions page at:

team.meditec.com/medword/faq.shtml

You should find your questions answered there.

________________________

I would like to take this opportunity to say that Meditech's courses are the first I have seen that have a good choice of packages at a realistic price with good payment options. We're putting our reputation on the line by recommending the programs but we do believe them to be a very good buy for people who want to become MTs. We have looked for years to see if we could "hook-up" with a good training program to offer our visitors. Meditech's "Personal Edge" programs finally met our criteria. Most MT courses are unbelievably over-priced but these courses, I believe, are priced properly and fairly. There is also a reasonable period of time where you can receive a refund if you are not happy with what you bought. (No school that I know of will give you a refund, especially for something like an MT course.) I would be very cautious about spending large sums of money on any MT course, no matter how "nice" the course materials look. It's the content that counts, as I am sure you know.

(Start Begging)
Medword.com is now an associate of Meditech and as such receives a modest commission on any sales that originate from our bulletin board or site links. If you do decide to buy one of the packages, we would be most grateful if you entered the site through our links. We are a privately owned company that runs our site and BB at our own expense. None of the commissions come anywhere near paying even a monthly bill, but every little bit helps.
(End Begging)

Whatever you decide, Good Luck.

I am currently enrolled with ROS (Reveiw of Systems MT course) After many months of researching home study courses I chose this one. ROS uses the SUM tapes and the one-on-one help with instructors is wonderful. But what impressed me most was the fact that the program offers a paid internship for it's students. For me that was important to be able to gain experiance while being able to work from home. The cost is about $1300, depending on you if would like to purchase your equipment through them. They do offer a payment plan and they also offer a refund, if you don't like what you get. For anyone trying to decide what course to take, I can only suggest you do your homework. There are a lot of wonderful programs available. You just need to find the one that is right for you! Good luck!

Hi,
I wanted to ask how everything is going with CCHS. I just received my MT Program package from them. I am still researching courses and wanted some feedback from someone who is enrolled in CCHS.
