Court ReportingAssociate in Applied Science (AAS)
You’ve seen high-profile trials with a person keying the testimony into a stenograph machine or read the scrolling captions for the hearing impaired on
your TV screen. The person recording the spoken words at speeds ranging from 180 to 225 words a minute is a court reporter.
If you’re an excellent listener, enjoy keyboarding, have strong language and communications skills, and are committed to accuracy and confidentiality, a
career in court reporting may be a perfect fit for you.
You’ll need to hear, speak, see, and use both hands to manipulate a computer keyboard and stenograph machine. Students are required to rent a stenograph
machine and laptop computer through the rental program available at Lakeshore Technical College (LTC).
The Court Reporting program is certified by the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA).
Core program courses are offered via video conference hosted by Lakeshore Technical College and are supported by select classes available in the MSTC District.
