Last year, about this time, in fact, I was getting ready to go to a captioning boot camp. I was so excited. I couldn’t wait to learn everything I didn’t know about captioning. I remember sitting in the seminar thinking, oh my gosh, am I ever going to be able to do this?
But it wasn’t long after I finished the boot camp that I was hired by a captioning company. I gave my notice to my reporting firm, said goodbye to the reporting world, and headed for training for my new job.
And just like that, I became a captioner.
Is your dream to become a captioner? An RMR? CRR? A court reporter? Don’t give up on making your career move in the direction you want it to go. Find the tools that you can use to get you there and go for it!
Captioning Boot Camp for June 2015
If you’re not able to attend this Captioning Boot Camp, I know that there are several others scheduled for this year. I’ll post the dates as soon as I learn them.
Other Court Reporting to Captioning Training Opportunities
Luckily, there are more and more opportunities now for reporters who want captioning training. I have compiled a list of court reporting to captioning programs than I am aware of. If you know of one that’s not listed here, let me know and I’ll add it to my post.
