Celebrate Certification Month 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.
May is Celebrate Certification Month, so let that be the reason you differentiate yourself from the rest of the pack and supercharge your earning potential. NCRA certifications set our members apart from the competition. They exemplify an investment in your unparalleled expertise in the courtroom, the classroom, the boardroom, or anywhere else we might be asked to create an accurate record of proceedings or events. Commit to sharing with others the importance of holding NCRA distinctions and why it is important to choose a certified professional whenever possible.

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.
“Providing realtime is like being asked to play a piano piece perfectly the first time through without ever having seen the sheet music … it’s extremely challenging! Earning the CRR certification has proven that I can take on that challenge, and I’m thankful to the NCRA for providing the opportunity to prove myself in this way.”
