Teach an NCRA A to Z® Program

NCRA is pleased that you are interested in leading a six- to eight-week NCRA A to Z Intro to Steno Machine Shorthand program.

NCRA A to Z program leaders work with small groups of participants as they learn how to write the alphabet and numbers in steno. This program does not follow any particular theory. Participants use loaner steno machines during sessions and outside practice. Leaders will receive training materials to use during the program.


Getting started

  • STEP 1: Watch the NCRA DiscoverSteno® webinar to get an overview of the program.

  • STEP 2: You MUST have an NCRA Account (Member or Non-Member) to complete the registration process. If you do not have an NCRA account, please use this link, or select the "Login" link in the top left to create a new user account.

  • STEP 3: Review and sign the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

  • STEP 4: After accepting the terms of agreement in the MOU, and once NCRA verifies your account access, you will receive an email with access to the program leader landing page. There, you will find everything you need to start and promote your program, including the NCRA A to Z Step-by-Step Toolkit. NOTE: NCRA will process all requests within 2-3 business days.
