Certified Reporters Program


Effective January 1, 2003, all court reporters in Arizona are subject to certification and must have Standard Certification or Provisional Standard Certification.

The Court Reporter Standard Certification Program (CR) provides statewide certification for persons in Arizona who are qualified to be certified.  Code Section 7-206 governs court reporter standard certification and applies to any person who records and transcribes a verbatim record in any sworn proceeding by means of written symbols or abbreviations in shorthand or machine writing in Arizona pursuant to Arizona Revised Statutes Title 32, Chapter 40.

 

The reporter's transcript is an important document before, during, and after the trial. The paper transcript and its electronic version are used for trial preparation, briefs, impeachment purposes, and appellate review. Property, freedom, and life all can depend on a clear and accurate record. Court reporting is integrally related to the prompt, effective, and impartial operation of the judicial system.
