USCRA focuses its attention on matters that affect court reporters who work in the United States District Court. The National Court Reporters Association (NCRA) has a broader focus because they represent reporters working in all fields (i.e. freelance, deposition, official, captioning).
In this capacity, NCRA maintains a list of certified schools. If you are interested in pursuing a career in court reporting, USCRA recommends you check out NCRA’s website at ncraonline.org. Click on Education, then Schools & Programs. That will lead you to a page that outlines their certification process. You can also access their list of approved schools by way of a link on the left-hand side of the page.
If after reviewing NCRA's website you need further information about court reporting education opportunities, we encourage you to contact them at their toll-free number, 1-800-272-6272.
