Georgina Ford RPR CRR

Council member; Vice President for two years

I began training in late 1989 having absolutely no idea what the job entailed, even after an interview lasting approximately three hours.   I began the course, eventually  gaining a speed certificate for 250 wpm on my Palantype machine at the IPS and receiving their Apsey-Haynes medal for the achievement.  I honed my skills to be a realtime reporter and now after over 25 years, innumerable hearings and uncounted air miles later, I really can’t imagine doing anything else.

In June 2018 I undertook and passed the American NCRA’s Registered Professional Reporter (RPR) examination  – one section at 100%.

In September 2018 I undertook and passed the American NCRA’s  Certified Realtime Reporter examination.
