Realtime captioning is an in-demand skill for court reporters. Earning the Certified Realtime Captioner certification will allow those who possess it to present themselves as among the most elite and qualified captioners.
To earn a CRC, candidates must:
- Take the CRC Workshop, which is now offered online as an on-demand e-seminar and can be taken anytime
- Pass the CRC Skills Test (literary matter at 180 wpm) at 96 percent accuracy, which is offered online and can be taken anytime
- Pass a 50-question CRC Written Knowledge Test, which can be taken at a Pearson VUE testing center in October (registration opens in September)
Throughout this process, CRC candidates will gain a solid foundation for understanding what it takes to be a captioner.
Interested? Registration for the online CRC Workshop, Skills Test, and Written Knowledge Test are currently open. More information is available online at NCRA.org/testing.
