Certified Shorthand Reporter (CSR)
Idaho's CSR test consists of the same material as in the RPR test (below)
Registered Professional Reporter (RPR)
There are three categories evaluated in the speed skills test, each lasting five minutes: Literary at 180 words per minute (WPM), Jury Charge at 200 WPM, and Testimony (or questions and answers) at 225 WPM.
The reporter must obtain a 95% accuracy rate in each of these three parts in order to pass. Reporters have 75 minutes to transcribe each of the three parts. After completing the RPR test, reporters must maintain this certification by renewing NCRA membership and completing continuing education requirements as mandated by NCRA.
Certified Realtime Reporter (CRR)
The Certified Realtime Reporter exam tests a candidate's ability to write realtime at 180 words per minute. The test is 5 minutes in length and it must be passed with a 96% accuracy rate. No typographical changes can be made by the candidate. It is turned in as written.
Registered Merit Reporter (RMR)
The RMR, Registered Merit Reporter, is the second highest certification offered by the NCRA, or National Court Reporters Association, for court reporters.
There are two parts court reporters must pass in order to obtain an RMR: a written knowledge test and a speed skills test. A reporter must also already have an RPR certification.
There are three categories evaluated in the speed skills test, each lasting five minutes: Literary at 200 words per minute (WPM), Jury Charge at 240 WPM, and Testimony (or questions and answers), at 260 WPM.
After completing the RMR test, reporters must maintain this certification by renewing NCRA membership and completing certain requirements as mandated by NCRA. There are currently approximately 3,000 Registered Merit Reporters in the United States.
Registered Diplomate Reporter (RDR)
A reporter must already be a Registered Merit Reporter. Also, the reporter must have six continuous years of membership with NCRA. Unlike the RPR and RMR, there is only one part a reporter must pass in order to obtain an RDR: a written knowledge test. There are currently over 350 Registered Diplomate Reporters in the United States.
