NYSCRA is proud to host a student webinar on Sunday, August 25th from 7-8 p.m. ET. We know not everyone was able to attend the national convention in Denver, so we are bringing this student-focused session right to you. A few seasoned members of our association, representing state court, federal court, freelance, captioning, and school, will be preparing some comments related to the following topics.

  • how to practice daily
  • how to focus in school
  • how to calm nerves before a test
  • how to be a professional on the job
  • how to network and find jobs
  • tips to maximize CAT software efficiency
  • and several other important topics

We will meet by Zoom on video.  Please RSVP below.  Hope you will join us.  

NYSCRA August 25, 2019 Student Webinar registration


NYSCRA is pleased to announce that the New York State Unified Court System will now recognize our voluntary certifications, the RCR and ACR, for provisional employment.  Our ACR and RCR members are immediately eligible to earn above-average salaries and receive both medical and vacation benefits. 

Voluntary Certification Committee Chair, Debra A. Levinson, CSR-RMR-CRR-RCR, worked closely with OCA to encourage them to recognize NYSCRA’s certifications.  This means that members who hold the RCR or ACR certifications are not required to take an assessment test for an available position.  

We anticipate many reporters registering for our association’s voluntary exams. “Having that ACR or RCR is now like an insurance policy. You never know when the need for an employment change may present itself, and the NYS court system offers a really excellent package,” said Debra A. Levinson.
