Learning how to break into a new career

On December 5 NCRA staff hosted a Virtual Open House for prospective court reporting and captioning students. We piloted this event earlier in the year and expanded our reach with this winter session. Opportunities such as this are one of the many ways NCRA is working to recruit and educate others on the court reporting and captioning professions.

School representatives hosted breakout room sessions via Zoom to answer questions and educate participants on the opportunities available at their programs. Participants had overwhelmingly positive feedback regarding the event and noted that being able to ask questions of educators one-on-one was a highlight of the event.
