Note: Applicants become students once they or their guardian signs and submits this document, receive a registration number from www.scribeaccred.com in their email, and verify it by submitting an OTP sent to their mobile phone.

To qualify for the DPMS CL1 Certificate of Participation and Marks Card, students must meet several criteria. Firstly, they are expected to attend at least 86% of the classes and participate in all Periodic Assessment Tests (PAT), which include chapter-wise tests and/or a comprehensive set of examinations, culminating in a Model Certification Test, referred to as the Model C-Test. Successful completion of the Model C-Test grants eligibility to sit for the final certification examination, known as the C-Test.

Additionally, students are required to regularly confirm their adherence to the prescribed syllabus by submitting syllabus acceptance forms to SCI. This ensures that their training aligns with SCI’s educational standards. Students are also tasked with evaluating their instructors and the Allied Institute, providing feedback to help SCI assess and, if necessary, enhance the quality of instruction, facilities, or training duration.

The C-Test, which stands for Certification Test, is the final hurdle at this level. It employs an absolute marking system to evaluate student performance. After the Model C-Test, students are allowed to attempt the C-Test, with the provision of up to four attempts within a 200-day period following their first attempt. Failure to secure the required score on the C-Test to progress to DPMS CL2 typically means students must retake the entire suite of subjects at their next attempt.

To promote transparency and self-improvement, students will receive scanned copies of their evaluated answer sheets for all offline tests, including English Grammar, Essay Writing, Proof Reading, and Synopsis Writing. This feedback is intended to help students identify areas for improvement.

About DPMS CL2

Admission into the DPMS CL2 program is contingent upon students achieving the requisite scores on the C-Test, as outlined in Table 1. Should a student fail to commence their CL2 training within ten days following the completion of all required procedures, SCI holds the discretion to mandate a retake of the C-Test for CL2 eligibility.

The admission process involves several key steps:


Recruiting partners will conduct comprehensive background checks on prospective students, assessing physical and mental health, as well as criminal history.


Candidates are expected to furnish all necessary documentation for the background verification process. This includes but is not limited to, copies of their PAN Card, proof of address, identity verification, prior employment records, and educational certificates.


Before advancing to the DPMS CL2 training phase, students might need to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) on legal stamp paper. This agreement aims to ensure confidentiality and compliance with HIPAA laws and other relevant regulations, specifying penalties for any breach.


Given that the training costs for DPMS CL2 are not student-incurred, participants may be asked to enter into an agreement that outlines a financial commitment. This agreement serves to guarantee that students will not withdraw from the program or the subsequent employment opportunity provided by the recruiting partner for a minimum duration of 30 months.

The training period for DPMS CL2, which typically ranges from three to six months, includes a tuition-free phase. After the first successful month of training, students might receive a monthly stipend of up to INR 15,000. This stipend is discretionary, based on factors such as merit and prevailing market conditions. If students fail to meet the required performance benchmarks at any stage without showing significant improvement despite additional opportunities, they may be asked to leave the program.

The DPMS CL2 curriculum is intensive and criterion-based, focusing on a variety of subjects crucial to the medical scribing field. This includes but is not limited to medical scribing essentials, medical chart preparation, and shadowing that are tailored to meet the industry's current demands. Training for this level is primarily conducted in Bengaluru.
