FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLEVELAND, WI –
The National Court Reporters Association (NCRA), the country's leading organization representing stenographic court reporters, broadcast and CART captioners, and legal videographers, has designated Feb. 11 - 18 as the 2017 National Court Reporting and Captioning Week. Lakeshore Technical College is one of only two colleges in the state to offer a degree in Court Reporting.
LTC will be holding an open house for individuals interested in learning more about earning an associate degree in the Court Reporting program. The open house will be held from 5:30-6:30pm at LTC on Wednesday, February 15 in room L137 and individuals can come any time during that time.
Participants will have the opportunity to meet a Court Reporting grad who has found career success, learn more about the program, learn more about attending live, interactive TV classes, find out about the option to participate in classes from the comfort of home if you live in an outlying region as well as find out what the next steps are to get registered for classes.
The program is certified by the National Court Reporters Association and graduates are trained to provide instantaneous text transcriptions for legal proceedings. Court reporting is a high demand career with an average salary of $50,000 per year with 100% placement after graduation from the LTC program.
"This is a great career choice if you are an excellent listener, have strong language and communication skills, and are detail-oriented," says LTC Instructor Barbi Galarno.
An additional informational session will be held Wednesday, April 5 from at the same time and location for those who are unable to attend the open house.
