As you probably found out by now the CMT exam is now obsolete. The ADHI company that gives transcription certification is basically a gyp joint geared to take your money and offer you nothing in return, except for a pin, a certficate saying you are certified and a magazine with pictures of their wonderful vacations (whoops i mean seminars) that are taken all on your dime. Belonging is not cheap (200+ a year) and the transcription pay is dwindling. Transcriptionists are now paid like the fruit pickers in the book "The Grapes of Wrath" (and at the same 1930s rate). To supplement their income from the dwindling numbers of transcriptionists(and those that chose not to belong to save that 200+ dollars a year) the ADHI have now focused on the medical record file clerks, giving them a fancy name (HIM tech and/or health documentation specialists) and telling them also that they are "professionals." If you want to belong go for it.....just remember.....a fool and his/her money are soon parted.
