Silver - minimum support
This is basically a 'work on your own' membership level with minimum support from us. You are able to access all of the lessons whenever you wish, completing the theory and achieving a speed, while working at your own pace and timescale. You will be able to access the answers to all the exercises except the assignments. You won't be able to send any of your work to us for marking. You can, of course, upgrade whenever you wish.
Gold - medium support
This level will suit you if you require more feedback and support. At the end of each lesson is an assignment comprising three parts testing your reading, writing and speed. You can send us these assignments for assessment and we will return them to you with any suggestions on how to improve your Teeline outlines, or just how to write them more quickly and efficiently. If you are struggling with any particular areas we will help you with these, as well as helping you with any specific words for your own area of work that you think you might use frequently. On completion of your final assignment, we will issue a certificate to confirm that you have successfully completed the online course. This is a PDF sent by email for you to print locally if you wish. There are no time limits on our Gold level - you can take as long as you like to complete it - we will leave you alone to get on with it 'in your own time'! By joining at this level you will also receive unlimited free access to our dictations only website which has 250 dictations at speeds ranging from 30 wpm to 120 wpm.
Platinum - maximum support
This is a much more structured approach to ensure you complete the course within a timescale advised by us and agreed by you. We understand that sometimes it's hard for students to remain motivated to learn when you have other work or study commitments. This level offers the chance for you to be contacted regularly so we can encourage you and help with your progress. We will contact you on a regular basis (e.g. weekly, two weekly, monthly) to: Check how you are doing; give a reminder of submission of your next assignment; set targets of speeds that you should be achieving at each stage; remind you of special outlines and phrases you should know; suggest high speed cuts for your own vocabulary; record special dictations including your own vocabulary. By joining at this level you will also receive unlimited free access to our dictations only website which has 250 dictations at speeds ranging from 30 wpm to 120 wpm.

A: It is important to remember that the outlines and symbols used in our lessons are suggestions - you do not have to follow every word by the letter. You can make up your own outlines, symbols and word groupings that are used frequently within your own environment. As long as you can read back your own shorthand then that is what really matters.

A: Unfortunately we received far too many cold callers and marketing calls. We are happy to provide a telephone number for you to call us if you send a message using our Contact Us page
A: Our members are worldwide and each country has its own examination boards - it would be impossible for us to arrange this for all of our students. We will, however, do what we can to put you in touch with an organisation who can help you.
A: As our method of payment is via PayPal then we can only accept the currencies that they will accept. You can send us a bank transfer if you wish - contact us for more information if this is what you wish to do.
