Certified Reporting Instructor (CRI)
The CRI certification program for teachers of court reporting subjects has been developed to encourage excellence in the educational programs that prepare tomorrow's court reporters. The program was designed to recognize that excellence in teaching is a composite of many traits, skills, and knowledge. Competence in the subject matter and knowledge of pedagogy are the main components that lead to success. This program attempts to address those areas. Thus, the program addresses the needs of those instructors who have professional certification and professional experience in the court reporting field and the needs of those instructors who have extensive formal education in pedagogy.
Master Certified Reporting Instructor (MCRI)
A Master Certified Reporting Instructor (MCRI) is one who has received the highest honor the court reporting education profession has to bestow. MCRI certification is a badge of merit, declaring that an instructor is highly accomplished, having met rigorous professional teaching standards by completing a multi-phase, performance-based assessment process.
Certified Program Evaluator (CPE)
A CPE is an individual trained to evaluate undergraduate court reporting programs. The CPE assists the school through the rigorous certification process and performs the official evaluation. If you are committed to helping shape the future of the reporting and captioning professions, consider becoming a CPE. Only CPEs may participate in the NCRA Program Certification Process.
