Court Reporting Schools

What is NCRA Approval?
For over 60 years, NCRA has worked with schools across the country to ensure that court reporting education is upheld to the highest quality learning and industry standards.

What does that mean? NCRA serves as an independent, third-party organization that reviews and approves court reporting programs, measuring them against established standards of educational excellence – the General Requirements and Minimum Standards (GRMS). The GRMS are critical benchmarks that set a collective standard and provide clear objectives to attain.

Why Does Approval Matter?
NCRA approval is designed to help court reporting programs boost their ongoing performance efforts for the benefit of their students. It also matters because students deserve the highest level of educational excellence possible.

One of the advantages is that NCRA-approved court reporting programs are recognized across the country and can assure prospective students that the school meets national standards. It also has a foundational meaning of continuous school improvement by engaging in the approval process. Lastly, schools participating in the NCRA approval process can benefit from shared expertise and professional learning.
