Career Launcher available to school administrators and firm owners

NCRF Career Launcher, the innovative and comprehensive new professional training program designed for court reporting students, new professionals, or anyone who needs a crash course in the life of a deposition reporter, is also offered for purchase to school administrators and firm owners for an initial cost of $499.

“Being a court reporter is more than just writing fast. This interactive video training platform has now been modified for educational institutions to incorporate this invaluable program into their curriculum, presenting students with the opportunity to gain insight from industry experts representing more than 150 years of experience,” said NCRA Immediate Past President Debbie Dibble, RDR, CRR, CRC, who led the program’s development with a team of veteran NCRA members. 

“This 10-module course is the perfect finishing tool to expose students to the daily intricacies of depositions from navigating the receptionist, managing the seating arrangements, guiding the attorneys, and so many other day-to-day circumstances they will encounter, all the way through to creating a quality final transcript. The course also includes a resource manual, full of examples and templates for students and new professionals to use as they embark on their career,” Dibble added.

To get started, school administrators or firm owners need to have an NCRA account to complete the enrollment process, sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), and purchase the product. Once payment is processed, the purchaser will be directed to NCRA’s Learning Center where they will find everything they need.

To have continuing use of the administrative materials and student modules after paying the initial fee, the organization or school must pay an annual $150 renewal fee. This renewal fee must be paid 30 days prior to the expiration date.

“NCRA is excited to offer this program to school administrators as an addition to supporting their students who are writing at the higher level of speeds,” said Cynthia R. Bruce, NCRA’s Senior Director of Education and Certification. “Schools that have beta-tested the program have found it to be very helpful,” she added.

The NCRF Career Launcher program is supported through the Corrinne Clark Professionalism Institute.
