I actually went through a program at a community college here. Since I was working at a hospital in med records at the time my supervisor let me train a little with some of the transcriptionists too so I got some on the job training as well. The online courses offered are pretty pricey, but you may want to just google medical transcription programs and research it. Things are pretty different now. Just make sure you research the programs thoroughly. Some places that hire work from home transcriptionists only hire people who go through specific programs. So if you're wanting to do it from home just research the companies first and see who they hire. Most likely you'll have to work for a hospital on site first to gain experience.
