New policy effective September 01, 2014
Candidates who enroll in the Basic Skills Course may no longer pay their own tuition. The Basic Skills Course tuition must be paid by a current or potential employer, known as a "sponsor." See the Pricing page for current tuition fees.
In the educational setting, TypeWell candidates are usually sponsored by a Disability Support department at a school or university. Candidates may also be sponsored by agencies, which in turn contract with schools, businesses, and organizations to provide communication access for their students, employees, and other clients.
Former transcribers who are completing the Refresher Course to renew their service qualification may pay their own way, and are not required to have a sponsor.
