TRAIN: Taking Realtime Awareness and Innovation Nationwide

Train LogoBased 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.
