Court reporting, captioning program new at Moraine Park

by admin5. August 2009 19:00

There’s still time to enroll in the new Judicial Reporting program opening this fall at Moraine Park Technical College.


Presented locally through a partnership with Lakeshore Technical College, the program prepares participants for well-paying, evolving careers in court reporting, broadcast captioning, Webcasting, freelance reporting and live-event captioning.


Graduates of this associate degree program go on to provide instantaneous text transcriptions for legal proceedings, television programming and hearing-impaired individuals. On average, court reporters and captioners earn more than $60,000 a year. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that job opportunities in this field will grow 10 to 20 percent through 2012.


Certified by the National Court Reporters Association, the Judicial Reporting associate of applied science degree program immerses students in real-world instruction at technical college campuses throughout Wisconsin. Because this is a shared program, Judicial Reporting students attend live, interactive TV classes sent from LTC to their local technical college, and take general studies classes and labs at their local college.
