- Registration Closed
Welcome to the NCRA A to Z® Online Program - Asynchronous!
Imagine a career with a front-row seat to all the action: high-profile criminal trials, the House of Representatives and the Senate, major sporting events, or breaking-new stories for TV!
We’re called court reporters, stenographers, captioners, speed-texters, and realtime communication specialists. Whatever you call us, we are technology. Picture yourself getting paid to caption the games of your favorite sports team or working in the center of the action during a high-profile trial.
This NCRA A to Z® online program is an asynchronous course with instructional videos and dictation materials. During this free program, experienced court reporters will teach you the alphabet in steno and how to write on a machine. Proof of iSteno App or access to a machine will be required prior to start of class.
*This will be a six-week course. Questions? Please visit our FAQ's here
