Pamela V. Dixon, a recent graduate of the College of Court Reporting, passed the national certification exam and earned her Registered Professional Reporter certification. Though earning this certification demands an incredible amount of preparation and focus, Pam met the challenge with a positive attitude and diligent practice.
In addition to developing incredible speed and accuracy on a computerized stenography machine, Ms. Dixon excelled in academic subjects as well. The written knowledge portion of the certification testing requires a great deal of knowledge in the area of standard English grammar and punctuation, medical and legal terminologies, and courtroom practicum. As a result of her education and skill, she is now capable of working in a variety of fields such as legal reporting in state and federal courts, freelance deposition reporting, broadcast television captioning, entertainment reporting, business reporting, and educational reporting for the deaf and hard -of- hearing.
Ms. Dixon, now a Registered Professional Reporter as of May 2012, started with CCR in October 2011 as an online student, after having worked as a Marine Corps court reporter. She graduated in the Winter of 2012 and is currently focusing on passing the English portion of the California CSR. She has already passed both the skills portion and the professional writing portion of the exam.
Ms. Dixon demonstrated a tremendous amount of dedication throughout her studies. She transcribed countless mock trials and speed evaluations, she contributed to many discussions in her LIVE virtual classes, and she is now ready to begin a new chapter of her life. Congratulations and good luck to Ms. Dixon as she enters her professional career.
The College of Court Reporting was the first online program in the country to be certified by the National Court Reporters Association. In December of 2003, CCR was one of five schools chosen throughout the entire United States from among all colleges and universities to participate in the U.S. Department of Education's Distance Education Demonstration Program.
