Authorized Court Transcriptionists:

Photo of Online Legal Transcriptionist Course in Canada• An ACT is an independent Authorized Court Transcriptionist who transcribes and certifies transcripts of Ontario in-court proceedings from audio recordings.

• Importantly, ACTs are not required to be in court. Once they receive the audio files, they can produce the transcript from anywhere.

• We provide our students with a comprehensive education in court transcript production, and ensure that they are fully equipped to produce accurate, reliable transcripts of legal proceedings.

Digital Legal Monitors:
• A digital monitor is a type of court reporter who uses audio equipment to record in-court or pre-trial proceedings.

• A digital monitor is also responsible for all of the duties of a court reporter, including marking exhibits, swearing in witnesses, and providing playbacks.

Government-Level Training & Qualification Standards:
• The Ministry of Attorney General (MAG) of Ontario sets the training and qualification standards for transcript production of Ontario in-court proceedings based on legislation, regulation, policy, and practice direction. Verbatim Studies designs the curriculum based on these standards.

• In 2014, the Ministry of the Attorney General announced a new model for transcript production in Ontario.

CCVS Student Reviews:

Picture of Online Legal Transcriptionist Course in Canada•  "The instructors, Mitra and Florent, were very knowledgeable, personable, and patient.  They went the extra mile to ensure every student learned the skills and obtained the tools and resources required to successfully complete the course.  They both, along with the Nancy, the Director of Education, provided ample support and assistance throughout!"

•  "Really effective online option for Court Transcription accreditation that fits conveniently into my already busy schedule. The instructors were knowledgeable, caring and worked great as a team, supporting us and each other."

•  "It's going so well and I don't think I've ever been happier attending school.  Every day I look forward to going to class and learning a new concept and realizing that I can actually DO it.  Even the technology part of learning isn't so daunting anymore. Everyone at CCVS really does care and wants the students to succeed."

•  "Whether you’re an in-class, hybrid, or on-line student, you’re never excluded from discussions; you’re part of a community that rejoices in each other’s successes and commiserates with each other’s disappointments.

And no one is more enthusiastic about your progress than the staff at CCVS. The teachers are top-notch. Their passion about stenography and its related components (grammar, vocabulary, reporting procedures) is contagious and makes learning a pleasurable experience. They support and advise and help you every step of the way toward your graduation as a reporter."


•  "I have been a student at CCVS for seven months now. Deciding to take the plunge and go for it was a very difficult decision to make, but I can honestly say that I've never looked back and regretted it.

All of the staff members at CCVS are very encouraging and helpful. Everyone wants you to succeed. My experience here has been extremely rewarding so far and I'm certain it will continue to be so. I strongly advise anyone with interest to look into this school. The school is definitely one of a kind!"
