The California Court Reporters Association, in conjunction with the Northern California Court Reporters Association and the Sacramento Official Court Reporters Association, are excited to announce the California launch of NCRA’s nationwide “A to Z Intro to Steno Machine Shorthand” program. The goal of this intensive recruitment effort is to introduce members of our local communities to the court reporting and captioning professions through a hands-on course in which candidates are provided loaner steno machines and attend live weekly classes over a six-week period taught by experienced reporters.
Our first program will take place in Sacramento in January 2019. CCRA will then work with firm owners, other local associations, and reporters/captioners throughout the state to host further programs in 2019.
If you are interested in doing your part to ensure the survival of our profession, now is the time for you to give back. We have already begun the work on our Northern California program and are currently recruiting volunteers to join one of our committees.
