In addition to its professional certifications, NCRA also offers the Trial Presentation Professional certificate, a technology-based certificate that acknowledges the recipient’s high level of knowledge and understanding of the use of electronics in trial presentation software to present evidence in court. As new technologies emerge, IT professionals, courtroom personnel, and trial presenters often have a wide range of equipment available to them in each new situation. Trial Presentation Professionals are well-versed in recognizing new technology and equipment and in determining which types are best suited to present evidence for the courtroom situation to in question.

As always, NCRA has made available to members a Celebrate Certification Month resources page with a catalog full of downloadable materials designed to help celebrate your certification. Resources include flyers, press release templates, JCR articles about certification, social media messaging, helpful NCRA quick links, and more. You can find the resources page at
