TRAIN: Taking Realtime Awareness and Innovation Nationwide
Based on feedback provided by members through Writing Our Future, NCRA has established the TRAIN program to help court reporters get past their reluctance to writing realtime.
- The goal of the TRAIN Program is to create an influx of realtime reporters to meet marketplace demand and to allow court reporters to differentiate themselves from other methods of making the record.
- Designed for delivery in small-group settings at the local level, the TRAIN program will rely on state associations and individual members to carry the message to reporters that experience has shown is the ideal setting for helping them make the transition to realtime.
References and guidance for our State Association Leaders. What are your state's specific realtime needs? What will it take to get your statewide official and freelance reporters interested in implementing realtime into their everyday work lives? Take realtime in your state into your own hands! The above PDF document will give you some assistance.
The NCRA TRAIN Committee members have reached out in the past to NCRA's certified realtime reporters and/or systems administrator certificate holders in each state, seeking volunteer state "TRAINers" to help spread the word and get the realtime TRAIN going down the tracks. The above PDF document has been created to give access to our gracious state TRAINERs who have volunteered their time to try and rally the troops in their home states as well as anyone else wanting information and guidance on creating a local TRAIN Group in your area.
