For over 17 years, this institute has been training court reporters. This school proudly teaches StenED Theory. This theory allows a student to write long or short. If you think about how many words are in the dictionary, it is clear every word is not a brief. So it is critical to learn how to write and read by sound and then incorporate as many briefs as you would like once you understand the concepts.
The key to success is to come to school each day, learn the theory and let go and write.
This is an accredited institution by The Council on Occupational Education and certified by the National Court Reporters Association. This institute hosts the RPR, RMR, and CRR skills exams three times a year.
We are interested in students who will come to school each day with a good attitude, practice a minimum of two hours a day in order to complete the program.
It is all up to you! If you have what it takes to be a professional court reporter, we would love to talk to you.
The court reporting program will prepare students for careers as Official, Freelance, or Congressional Reporters, and real-time writers.
This is accomplished by teaching eight levels of computer-compatible machine shorthand with the following accompanying academic subjects:
English Grammar, Spelling, Vocabulary, Advanced Punctuation, Law, Legal Terminology, Court Reporting Procedures, Medical Terminology, Anatomy and Physiology, Keyboarding, Technical and Medical Dictation/Transcription, Multi-Voice Dictation, Computer-Assisted Transcription, including Real-Time Writing and Editing (utilizing state-of-the-art court reporting computer software technology).
The court reporting program is a comprehensive course designed to teach students the skills and abilities essential to providing professional and accurate court reporting transcripts in all of the above-listed occupations.
Graduates of this program will be able to communicate and interact effectively with both the legal community and the CART community while observing confidentiality for their client's rights.
They will be proficient in writing machine shorthand at 225 wpm Testimony, 200 wpm Jury Charge, and 180 wpm Literary. They will be able to produce professional and accurate transcripts, including technical and medical, in a timely manner. They will be able to apply the National Court Reporters Association Rules and Ethics to various job-related issues.
The administration, faculty, and staff are committed to providing excellence in education in court reporting to each and every student. This is accomplished through positive reinforcement, a structured classroom environment, and utilization of the latest software translation systems.
