Sage College

Sage College has been providing court reporting courses for more than 40 years. In 2009, Sage College graduates led all other schools in passing the Certified Shorthand Reporters test. They also excelled above all other schools in English and court reporting procedures. Sage College trains reporters to take verbatim testimony in court proceedings, at depositions, doing closed-captioning for broadcasts and any other circumstance that requires an accurate, verbatim written record of what was said.

Diploma in Court Reporting

Students are taught to use stenotype machines to take dictation at 200 or more words per minute (wpm), with a 95% accuracy rate. Classes covering other essential information such as computer theory, legal and medical terminology, vocabulary, court procedures and preparing transcripts are also taught. Students are expected to spend a substantial amount of time practicing, and the school provides dictation labs on campus or online for that purpose, for which students receive academic credit. Students also work in an apprenticeship situation for 60 hours with a credentialed court reporter once their speed reaches 180 wpm.

Associate of Applied Arts in Court Reporting

Prospective court reporters seeking an associate's degree in the field take the same courses as the diploma program. The completion of general education courses such as math, English, psychology, geography, literature, philosophy, political science and business are required.
