ProofreadAnywhere.com is the online home of the Proofread Anywhere, a website created by Caitlin Pyle, a professional proofreader who has been helping others work in proofreading since 2007.
Proofread Anywhere is also now the online home of Caitlin Pyle’s training course, Transcript Proofreading: Theory and Practice™, which is intended to help people with all the training they need to become a professional proofreader.
Though Caitlin says that becoming a proofreader won’t make anyone rich, she says it is an excellent way to earn side income or to even earn a full time income if you are willing to work hard enough.
Understanding the Course
Caitlin Pyle says that before she created her training course, there really wasn’t any real, fully comprehensive proofreading course available online. She wanted to change this, and create a course that didn’t just check the boxes on the skills that proofreaders needed, but that truly prepared people for what it is like to work in the proofreading industry.
To do this, her team reached out to actual court reporters to find out what makes a great proofreader? This feedback was used to create this course from top-to-bottom, resulting in a “thorough, well-planned, rigorous training program for transcript proofreaders.”
Their course covers all important topics, from “formatting and preferences to punctuation and parentheticals” so that their graduates are absolutely as prepared for the reality of working in proofreading as they can be.
How It Works
Proofread Anywhere says that they actually don’t believe that professional proofreading is cut out for everyone, so before you sign up for their paid course they ask all their students to take their seven day free course.
This free course provides prospective students with a new short lesson each day so they can see whether or not proofreading is something they enjoy and can do. If you decide to move forward with their course, you will then sign up for their 30 Day Jumpstart for $197.
Again, the website says they don’t even offer the option for their students to sign up for the entire course at one time, because if anything changes or you decide that this area of business just isn’t for you, Proofread Anywhere doesn’t want you to feel as though you are forced to continue or lose a huge investment.
If you continue past the 30 Day Jumpstart you will move to their 60 Day NextSteps course, which is priced at $400, and once that is successfully completed, you can move on to The Rest of the Course at $300, for a total of $897 for the entire course.
