Everything You Need to Know About Court Reporting Schools
Becoming a Court Reporter
Court Reporting and Captioning at Home is owned by a court reporter who holds the RMR (Registered Merit Reporter) credential with an extensive background in court reporting, closed captioning, and CART providing.
How Much Does It Cost?
Traditional court reporting schools generally charge by the quarter, semester, or credit hour. Most of them range between $24,000-$57,000 for a 2-or 3-year program and may lead to an “Occupational” Associate’s Degree.
What should I look for?
The two most important components of any court reporting, captioning, or CART providing training program are the theory you learn and the support you receive throughout your training.
What Will I learn?
CRAH furnishes ALL the academics found on any state or the national certification examination, and if our students are already proficient in them, they do not have to waste time on them, thereby saving months or years in training.
Finding a Job
CRAH enjoys a 100% placement rate, and EVERYONE who completes his training with the Court Reporting and Captioning at Home program has been employed as either a court reporter, captioner, or CART provider.
Approximately half the states in the United States require court reporters to obtain certification credentials by passing either an examination administered by their state or the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA).
