What is required to become a medical transcriptionist?

Like the question says, I was wondering what is required to become a medical transcriptionist - what courses I need to take, how much time I have to invest, how much it's going to cost me, how I go about getting a job as a medical transcriptionist once the courses are finished. Will I get a degree, or certification, or something else? Any additional information you can give me would be a great help, too. Thanks :-)
