Career Outlook
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics:
Court reporters create word-for-word transcripts of speeches, conversations, legal proceedings, meetings, and other events. They play a critical role in legal proceedings and other meetings where it is important to have a record of exactly what was said. They are responsible for producing a complete, accurate, and secure legal record.

Demand for court reporter services will be influenced by new federal legislation requiring increased captioning for the Internet and other technologies. Reporters will increasingly be needed for captioning outside of legal proceedings. All new television programming will continue to need closed captioning, while broadcasters are adding closed captioning to their online programming in order to comply with new federal regulations.
The Court Reporting Institute of Arlington facility is located at 4300 Wilson Blvd. and consists of 2,400 square feet of space, with classrooms, a student lounge, and a computer lab on the second floor. Our campus offers both day and evening classes and practical hands-on training to court reporting and transcriptionist training students. Classes start every twelve weeks and are generally limited in size to a 30:1 student/teacher ratio and labs are limited to a 20:1 ratio. The Court Reporting Institute of Arlington faculty members are dedicated to academic achievement, to professional education, to individual attention, and to the preparation of students for their chosen careers.
