What is the RDR?
The Registered Diplomate Reporter (RDR) is NCRA’s highest degree of certification designed for elite reporters desiring to join an exclusive club of reporting excellence.
The court reporting profession's most knowledgeable professionals have the opportunity to prove themselves. If you have exhibited exemplary skills in all areas of court reporting, if you are actively involved in court reporting and served as a consultant or leader in the profession, then you are ready to sit for the Registered Diplomate Reporter Examination.
Who is eligible to sit for the RDR Exam?
To sit for the RDR Exam, a candidate must be a RMR and have five current and continuous years of membership commencing with Participating or Registered member status.
How to maintain your RDR certification
As an RDR, you will participate in NCRA's continuing education program. To renew your RDR, you must maintain your NCRA membership and earn 3.0 CEUs over your three-year cycle. You will renew your RPR, RMR, and RDR certifications simultaneously with the same 3.0 CEUs.
In other words, a reporter with RPR, RMR, and RDR certifications will only have to earn a total of 3.0 CEUs over one three-year period to renew all three certifications.
Recognition of your achievement
After you have earned your RDR, you will receive an official certificate to display in your home or office. Your RDR will also be recognized in the Journal of Court Reporting, NCRA PROLink, and on NCRA's website.
