Court Reporter

  The Court Reporter program is a two-year program leading to an A.A.S. degree.  Court Reporters capture and document each word spoken, action taken, or gestures made within the courtroom using various technologies.  They are employed in courtrooms, for freelance firms as captioners, or doing CART (communications access real time translation).
Demand for court reporters is expected to soar in the next 5 years across the United Sates with more than 5,500 new job openings.  Students can expect an annual starting salary of $45,000 - $60,000.

Upon successful completion of this program the student will have the skills required to sit for the Kansas Certified Court Reporter (CCR) exam administered by the Kansas State Board of Examiners of Court Reporters and the Registered Professional Reporter (RPR) credential administered by the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA).
