NCRA Reporting, National Court Reporters Association

NCRA certifications have set the standard for excellence since 1935.

That year, the first certification program was established to individually recognize the competence of court reporters. In the first year 27 reporters passed the first exam, establishing themselves as “Certified Professionals,” or CPs.

The certification program now has three tiers of achievement and proudly claims nearly 14,000 Registered Professional Reporters (RPRs), the updated equivalent of the CP. Over 3,000 reporters have earned the next level of certification, the Registered Merit Reporter (RMR), and over 350 have become Registered Diplomate Reporters (RDRs). Additionally, of significant importance in today’s court reporting marketplace is the Certified Realtime Reporter (CRR).
