Register for the Certified Realtime Captioner (CRC) Workshop at NCRA’s 2019 Convention & Expo happening Aug. 15-18, in Denver, Colo., and start on becoming recognized as one of the most elite and qualified captioners in the profession. The CRC Workshop is being held on Thursday, Aug. 15, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is chock-full of valuable information for understanding what it takes to be a captioner.

Candidates for the CRC must also:

  • Pass the CRC Skills Test (literary matter at 180 wpm) at 96 percent accuracy, which is offered online under NCRA’s new block schedule. Registration for the Skills Test will be open from Aug. 1-20, with testing available from Sept. 1-20.
  • Pass a 50-question CRC Written Knowledge Test (WKT).

The CRC certification also acknowledges proficiency in language skills and in realtime writing in the broadcast and CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation) environments.

“Becoming a Certified Realtime Captioner will allow me to expand my professional reporting services to my clients and hone my skills in a challenging industry,” said Elia E. Carrión, RPR, an official court reporter for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. Carrión has worked as a court reporter for 22 years. She earned her CRC in May.
