Court Transcription

Northern Alberta Institute of Technology

Northern Alberta Institute of Technology

www.nait.ca
The Court Transcription certificate provides students with the knowledge and skills to produce accurate transcripts by applying rules of grammar and punctuation to the spoken word of pre-recorded proceedings using machine shorthand and computer-aided transcription software. In addition to court transcript production, graduates may be hired as scopists and proofreaders to aid in court transcript production. Graduates will also have opportunities to produce transcripts and verbatim captions in support of disciplinary proceedings, arbitration hearings, 9-1-1 calls, interviews, investigations, shareholders' and other meetings, and prerecorded television and Internet videos. Because Court Transcriptionists work with recordings, their hours and location are often very flexible. Court Transcriptionists are often able to work from a home office and can accept work from across the province and country. The Court Transcription certificate is a full-time one-year program. Graduates have the opportunity to continue into the Captioning and Court Reporting diploma program.
