At CanScribe, we aim to help you reach your goals, solve your problems, and answer your questions. We are starting a new series called “Ask CanScribe Graduates”. Here, our graduates answer questions highlighting their experience with CanScribe, the program, and online learning. In this episode, Amanda Monroe helps answer the question, “should I be nervous about online training?”
Tell Us About Your Experience
In the beginning, I was very nervous as I had never taken any post-secondary schooling or training of any kind, and I had always worked customer service or labour type jobs. It was a huge leap of faith in myself, but I went for it and I am definitely glad I did! The course was engaging and it was a ton of fun to learn all of the information. I am also excited to keep learning since it is such a broad spectrum work field. The opportunities are immense!
The instructors and staff were simply amazing to deal with. They are very quick to respond and will help you until you are 100% confident in the issue they are helping you with. They are always super friendly and supportive. I never felt silly or wrong asking my questions because there are no silly questions!
Now that I have completed the course, I feel confident and ready to begin searching for my new career position. I am very excited to begin this journey and see where it will take me!
What made you look into Medical Transcription?
I had been working labour/customer service my whole life, and after having my daughter I was ready to find something I could make a career and not completely exhaust myself doing every day. There are so many work-from-home jobs, but this is 1 of the few that you can go places with.
Why do you want/need to work from home?
I want to work from home so I can be a part of my daughter’s early years. The thought of putting her in daycare to go work for just enough money to pay for said daycare was appalling to me, and I knew I needed something legit and worthwhile. Now I will get to be there for her all the time and still get to further myself in a career that will set me up for great things in the future!
What is your biggest motivation to succeed?
Setting an example for my daughter to show her that you can go for anything you want in life. Be passionate and bold. If you want to do something, don’t let anyone or anything hold you back
What advice would you give to new students?
Ask ALL the questions. The instructors are 100% there for you and will be extremely helpful in getting you to your final goal.
