Learn More About Court Reporting

The West Valley College Court Reporting and Captioning Department has been offering quality career training programs for over 30 years. These careers are more relevant than ever. Trained court reporting and captioners are in high demand to meet the increased need for litigation, captioning services, text-video synchronization, email transcripts, and webcasting.

All students in the program are trained with innovative techniques to help them meet the requirements for state and national certification. In the Bay Area, starting salaries in the field range from $65-100K. A wave of retirements by active court reporters and captioners is expected to create thousands of job openings around the country. Choose Court Reporting or Captioning and you can enter these rewarding and respected careers.
