  • As you're searching for information about BeST®, don't be fooled by other outfits who sprinkle our course name around their own website in an attempt to lure you in.

  • As you're preparing to begin your scoping training, don't be lured by "cheap" programs with misleading claims.

  • Do your homework before you are swayed by another training program. Does the instructor have many years of actual experience as a scopist or have they simply been teaching in another field?

  • With BeST® there is no additional training material to purchase. Everything's included in one price.

  • We assist our BeST® graduates in finding work, and they usually wind up so busy that they have to turn work away!

  • BeST® hours of operation are not limited to 9 to 5 Monday through Friday. We are responsive to your questions 7 days a week.

  • BeST is the ONLY scopist training program endorsed by Ms. Lillian Morson, THE authority in punctuation for the court reporting/scoping field and author of Morson's English Guide for Court Reporters. And BeST is the ONLY training course able to offer this book!
So if you've just enrolled, get ready to learn a lot, have some fun, and begin a scoping career that lets you work at home, be your own boss, and set your own hours!
