Caption Masters Training Course

Cost: $1,500 (4-month course)
2.8 Continuing Education Units

The original Caption Masters Series (CMS) seminar has helped to train hundreds of realtime reporters to become A+ broadcast captioners. Today, the Caption Masters Series has been adapted into Caption Master Series II, an online version taught over the course of 4 months.

This new and innovative training program will prepare you for a career in broadcast captioning. This 16-week program has been specifically designed by experts in the field to provide participants with hands-on training through online seminars, manuals, dictionary builders and individual weekly realtime writing evaluations. (Yes, this means you’ll have homework!)

Your current CAT software is all you’ll need for this class – no captioning software is required.

Note: In addition to the tuition, students will be required to purchase a pre-arranged membership with Realtime Coach at the total discounted rate of $144 to be used during the course. The membership will terminate at the end of the course.
