Celebrate Certification Month is an annual campaign held every May, and is a way for NCRA members to show pride in the certifications they have earned, are working to earn, or are intending to earn. It is also designed to help encourage those who haven’t considered earning one of NCRA's nationally recognized certifications to rethink their decisions.
Members and states may use these free resources and templates to showcase their professional certifications. The templates can be used to broadcast Celebrate Certification Month and announce current and new certifications to local media outlets, which members can distribute themselves, or send to NCRA at PR@ncra.org for distribution on their behalf.
Share the following resources with your clients, with others interested in the career, or just to showcase your pride in the profession.

“Earning the RPR has shown me that at the right time I will reap the benefits if I don’t give up. Obtaining NCRA certification allows me to be a part of a stenographic community where we all strengthen each other to strive towards the greater good – the gold standard.”
Brooke Cruise, RPR, Tampa, Fla.
“Certifications give me confidence that I can take any type of assignment. Doctors and experts have certifications to pass — so should reporters.”
Rich Germosen, FAPR, RDR, CRR, North Brunswick, N.J.
“Earning this certification was important to me from the very beginning of my career. To have these skills recognized by a national organization shows my commitment to the art of stenography and to the accuracy of the record.”
