Today’s job market requires highly trained, computer-oriented
professionals, essential to the nation’s judicial processes. A trained reporter using the latest realtime computer-aided
transcription processes remains the fastest, most accurate way to turn spoken information into readable, searchable, permanent
text. These processes are called computer-aided transcription, or CAT, and rapid text entry.
As you embark on your educational journey, you will find numerous choices since we live in a nation
rich with excellent colleges and universities. When weighing your options, you may likely ask yourself several questions:
Are there academic courses that interest me? Does the college have flexibility in choosing a major or may I remain undecided?
Is the college utilizing and teaching state-of-the-art technology? Will I easily become part of a stimulating and friendly
community of fellow students, faculty and staff? Here at CCR, the answer is "yes" to each of these questions.
College of Court Reporting is a progressive, student-centered institution with a global reputation as being the leader
in court reporting education. CCR was one of the first colleges in the country to deliver its entire court reporting program
via distance education over the Internet and award an Associate of Applied Science degree. CCR was recently one of five colleges
and universities nationwide to be selected by the U.S. Department of Education to participate in their Distance Education
Demonstration Program. We are home to the state's only degree granting court reporting program.
We provide exemplary
educational opportunities through our commitment to an academic range of general education courses to occupational specific
academic and skill development courses. From court reporting procedures, closed captioning, to computer aided transcription,
dedicated faculty complement every discipline. During the last decade, College of Court Reporting has moved ahead by expanding
its court reporting program creating new captioning and CART reporting courses to meet our students' needs.
Lastly, in 2005 we received approval from the Indiana Commission on Proprietary Education to implement a full associate degree
granting captioning program. We look forward to letting all of our students, current and prospective, know when that
program will be available.
