Thanks and regards

It is not on the SOL because it is not considered a skilled occupation for immigration and thus no assessment and no immigration.

If by Medical transcripter you mean someone who types up a medical report from a Doctors audio delivery, here in Australia the people who do that have usually just developed their skills from working in medical practices.

There may now be some short courses that people can do but nothing that'll lead to a qualification to warrant it ever being considered at a SOL level.
