Maybe this webpage would help --- but it shows no schools in Virginia that this outfit has certified.

Thanks Lily, but when you go to Fortis's website that's not a program they offer.

Tazorac, why do you want to become a court reporter? I would have thought that with changes in technology that this is a dying profession. I found two articles pretty quickly - one saying it is a dying profession, another saying it is not.

Court Reporting: The Dying Profession - Naples Reporting

Good luck in your search. Have you called Fortis College? You may want to ask and get an answer straight from a person there.

That's what I was thinking too, TN Lily. With voice recognition technology advancements, and digital audio recording I don't see a need for court reporters in the near future.
