Job Security

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predicts an increased need for captioners and court reporters.


Captioners and court reporters don’t just work in courtrooms. Stenographers are needed in sports arenas, television studios, theaters, universities, convention centers, and more.


Captioning and court reporting are professions that reward hard-working individuals focused on transcribing with speed, accuracy, and ethics.

Currently, North Carolina does not have a court-reporting school.
