April 25 event offers introduction to career with high income potential
Learn about career opportunities in the growing field of captioning and court reporting during an open house at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 25, at the Western Campus of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
The event – sponsored by Tri-C’s Captioning and Court Reporting program – will introduce potential students to the profession. The open house will include hands-on exercises using stenography machines and voice-writing technology.
College faculty and industry professionals will be on hand to talk about the job outlook, the school’s program and a scholarship opportunity that includes a stenography machine and mentoring stipend.
Court reporters create word-for-word transcriptions at trials, depositions and other legal proceedings. Some court reporters provide captioning for television and real-time translation for deaf or hard-of-hearing people at public events and business meetings or in classrooms.
The National Court Reporters Association forecasted a need for 5,500 new court reporters by 2018. Jobs will open due to retirements by older workers and new federal laws to improve the quality of broadcast captioning.
The median annual income for court reporters is nearly $50,000, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. One in 10 court reporters earn in excess of $90,000 a year.
“With two years of classwork at Tri-C, job seekers can enter a career with higher incomes, job flexibility and tremendous opportunity,” said Kelly Moranz, who manages Tri-C’s program, which is certified by the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA).
The open house will be in the upper cafeteria at Western Campus, 11000 Pleasant Valley Road in Parma.
