Program & Courses

Both our Court Reporting and Realtime Court Reporting programs offer comprehensive training on all aspects of being a successful court reporter. All courses in both programs are instructor-led and can be completed online through the CCVS Learning Management System (LMS). Our academic courses are designed to be asynchronous, meaning that you and your fellow students do not have to meet on the LMS at specific times. Aside from weekly due dates for assignments, you are free to set your schedule for both your courses and steno practice. As a student at CCVS, you can complete one of two programs:

 

Realtime Court Reporting

The Realtime Court Reporting program is designed to take a minimum of two years of study and steno practice. The program is approves as a vocational program under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005 and meets the rigorous requirements of the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA). The program concludes with a 50-hour internship, which provides one-on-one training with an experienced court reporter. Students who complete this program successfully will be able to write at a speed of 225 words per minute with an accuracy rate of 95%. With a diploma in realtime court reporting, you will be equipped with the skills needed to become a realtime court reporter, live broadcast captioner, webcaster, medical transcriptionist, and CART (Communication Access Relatime Translation) service provider.

Your progress will be closely monitored and helped by our team of experienced, certified instructors. Our instructors are available Monday to Friday by telephone, email, or online chat.

 

Court Reporting

The Court Reporting program is designed to take a minimum of two years of study and steno practice. Like the Realtime Court Reporting program, this program is approved as a vocational program under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005. Students complete the academic portion of their studies online while working on their steno practice via one of the course delivery options outlined below. Students who complete this program successfully will be able to write at a speed of 160 words per minute with an accuracy rate of 95%. With a diploma in court reporting, students will be able to work as a non-realtime reporter, offline captioner, medical transcriptionist, note-taker, or scopist.

Your progress will be closely monitored and helped by our team of experienced, certified instructors. Our instructors are available Monday to Friday by telephone, email, or online chat.

 

Course Delivery Options

Our programs provide three delivery options available to students:

In-Class Option:

In our in-class program CCVS students attend class Monday to Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The program features twenty hours a week of teacher-led instruction where you will be provided with the one-on-one, hands-on training that you will need to succeed in the CCVS classroom. Learn more by contacting our Admissions department.

Hybrid Option:

Our hybrid program is a combination of in-class and online study and is a great option for any student with a busy lifestyle who is unable to commit to full-time education. Students who are located in the GTA or just beyond can meet in a group setting with their steno instructor on Mondays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Contact us today for more information.

Online Option:

With our online program you can complete the program from anywhere in the world. Like our other programs, our online program is instructor-supervised, which means that even though you won't be attending class in a traditional sense, you'll still have access to experts to help you along the way. Students participate together in a variety of learning activities via the LMS, email, and other online communication tools.

Professional Development & Individual Courses (ongoing):

Professional development and individual module courses are offered on an ongoing basis. If you're interested in supplementing or upgrading your skills, this study option may be for you.

All CCVS study options can be explained in detail by one of our dedicated staff members. Contact us for more info.
