Welcome to USCRA, the United States Court Reporters Association


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.
