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. 

Plan now for the present or your future. Live practice dictation will be offered to our members for a nominal fee beginning in January 2019. Check back in 2019 for further information.




An Important Message from NYSCRA

As your Association leaders we want you to know that NYSCRA is organized for the purpose of maintaining the standards of excellence in court reporting, and promoting court reporters, captioners and CART providers. We maintain high professional standards and do not promote the use of electronic recording, digital reporting, nor any other means of capturing the spoken word, other than the stenographic skills that we all worked so hard to achieve.

There has been quite a bit of chatter on Facebook about NYSCRA's February 17, 2019 event. As an Association we do not promote any agency, agency owner, transcription service, electronic recording company or digital recording company or any other industry that chooses to sponsor or make a donation. For their participation and support of an event, they get recognition from NYSCRA.

Again, we wish to reiterate that NYSCRA promotes the fields of court reporting, captioning, student recruitment, training and the standards of excellence.

NYSCRA President
