I am the current Vice-President of the BIVR.

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 25 years, innumerable hearings and uncounted air miles later, I really can’t imagine doing anything else.
