Court Reporting Program Awarded Recertification at Lakeshore Technical College




The Council on Approved Student Education has awarded Lakeshore Technical College’s court reporting program recertification though January 2028. The organization bases its decision on standards set forth by the National Court Reporters Association.

“Our recertification reflects the high quality program and instruction provided to our students, who are graduating and enjoying fulfilling careers throughout our community,” said Lakeshore Interim Vice President of Instruction Tanya Boman.

According to Lakeshore’s most recent data, its court reporting graduates report 100% job placement and a $48,859 median annual income within six month of graduating. 

Lakeshore offers one of only two NCRA-approved programs in the state and the only program currently accepting new students.
