  • 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 and more recently their Registered Merit Reporter examination.
