Certified and Participating Programs

NCRA is not an accrediting agency, but all NCRA-certified programs are accredited by agencies recognized by the U.S. government. Each institution's transfer of credit policy is governed by the standards of the particular agencies accrediting that institution. 

Requirements & Standards

General Requirements and Minimum Standards are established by the Council on Approved Student Education (CASE), part of the National Court Reporters Association. 

Program Certification & Maintenance
