WHAT: Cerritos College's Court Reporting and Captioning Careers program will offer evening classes for beginning court reporting and captioning students in the fall 2012 semester. These classes are open to anyone interested in a career in court reporting or captioning.
"Evening on-site classes are generally not available at any public schools," said Vykki Morgan, co-chair of the Cerritos College Court Reporting and Captioning Careers program. "This is a great opportunity for students who would like to jump into court reporting training but haven't been able to attend classes during the day."
The Court Reporting and Captioning Careers Department offers two $500 scholarships, funded by a Congressionally-directed grant for Realtime Captioning from the U.S. Department of Education, for students interested in becoming realtime captioners. Students must be enrolled in the beginning court reporting classes (Theory and Theory Review) for the Fall 2012 semester, which begins August 20, 2012.
The Court Reporting and Captioning Careers program will host an orientation on Saturday, May 12, at 2:00 p.m. The orientation will cover how to get started in court reporting and captioning, career options in court reporting and captioning, getting through court reporting school and scholarship information.
