Bloomfield College in New Jersey Starting Court Reporting Program

Posted on: December 16th, 2019 by Dependable Website Management No Comments

Bloomfield College will soon be the only institution in the state of New Jersey to offer on-site court reporting instruction. They will be offering two certificate programs starting in January 2020.  These programs will prepare students for careers in scoping (certificate one), and judicial court reporting/captioning (certificate two).

The Director of the program is Dr. Greg Reid (also the Library Director) and he knows the court reporting program is in high demand for both legal proceedings and for video captioning.

The National Court Reporters Association cites that there are 5,500 job vacancies due to a lack of qualified applicants and an aging workforce. More than 60% of people working as court reporters and captioners are making at least $60,000 annually, with salaries expected to increase by 14% through 2020.

Court reporting, and related professions, deal with converting the spoken word into standard, readable copy that can be searched and archived. Initial spoken word capture is done by a human, cryptically, via “machine shorthand.” The tool utilized for capture is a small “steno” machine with a specialized keyboard that interfaces, via software, with a standard computer/laptop.
