Placement and Licensure

Judicial reporting jobs in the state of Illinois require a national Registered Professional Reporter (RPR) license issued by the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA) or a state level Certified Shorthand Reporter (CSR) license issued by Illinois Court Reporters Association (ILCRA). Further information about the licensure exams can be found at the association websites:
http://www.ncra.org/Certifications/

While most states are moving in the direction of requiring RPR licensure, some states do not have this requirement to work as a freelance reporter. Contact your state association for further information on state specific requirements. Although there are employment scenarios related to judicial reporting which allow graduates to work in the field without an RPR or CSR license, it is strongly recommended that the license is obtained within the first year after graduation for the best job placement opportunity.
