Court reporting schools in New York offer students short term training programs ranging from one to three years. Some programs are certified by the National Court Reporting Agency, which adds validity to the program but is not required. Court reporters also work outside the justice system as closed captioning specialists. A new wave of careers has opened up, due to advances in technology, and many trained court reporters now provide their services for internet events. The occupation is expected to grow 18% over the next seven years, making it one of the faster growing careers. Students should expect favorable job prospects upon graduation.
