Partnership brings certification training for job seekers looking for a high-demand, flexible, technology-driven, remote career at a time when over 15 million people are unemployed due to the COVID-19 pandemic
TAMPA, FL. – AUGUST 25, 2020 – ed2go, a leading online continuing education provider, and BlueLedge, an American Association of Electronic Reporters and Transcribers (AAERT) approved training provider, have partnered to meet the growing demand for reporters and transcribers. Starting today, BlueLedge’s digital court reporting and legal transcription courses are available online through an ed2go partner to provide opportunity for the more than 15 million people unemployed due to the COVID-19 pandemic or other job seekers looking for a career that is flexible, technology-driven, remote, and in high-demand.
The partnership signals the largest expansion of training for this industry. ed2go’s strategic network includes over 2,000 colleges and universities and more than 100 workforce development agencies. Now, learners nationwide can quickly pursue a well-paid career and advance their earnings potential by gaining certification from the AAERT Certified Electronic Transcriber (CET)or Certified Electronic Reporter (CER) programs.
“This partnership embodies our mission,” says Benjamin Jaffe, manager of digital training and development for BlueLedge. “We want to bring digital reporting and legal transcription education to the masses.”
Digital reporters capture the record of testimony in legal proceedings using advanced technology; legal transcriptionists transcribe the testimony into an official transcript used in courts of law. Students enrolled in the digital reporting course will learn about the legal processes, protocols and tools needed to capture depositions, hearings and trials. Those enrolled in the legal transcription course will learn the technical side of transcription, including formatting, grammar, and transcription technology.
Stacy Fern, ed2go’s partnership and inventory manager, says that the company is “excited to grow the catalog with innovative legal courses and help job seekers obtain careers in such a high-demand field.”
