Court Reporting

A Continuing Education Program

Court reporting involves the transcribing of spoken words into a written document, creating the official record for court hearings, depositions and other legal proceedings. In this program, you will be introduced to machine shorthand, the court reporter’s role in litigation support, broadcast captioning and computer-aided transcription. You will learn about conflict-free writing and how to take legal, medical and technical dictation. You will build up your speed on the steno machine until it reaches upwards of 200 words per minute with high accuracy.
