Douglas Armstrong, Shoreline, recognized as Registered Professional Reporter

The National Court Reporters Association (NCRA), the country’s leading organization representing stenographic court reporters, captioners, and legal videographers, has announced that Douglas Armstrong has earned the nationally recognized Registered Professional Reporter (RPR) certification, having demonstrated his ability to produce a high-quality verbatim record.

RPR certification distinguishes stenographic court reporters as being among the top contributors to the profession in terms of reporting skills, transcript production, reporting and operating practices, and professionalism.

“Earning RPR credentials is quite an accomplishment given the amount of preparation and knowledge that successful candidates must possess to pass,” said Marcia Ferranto NCRA Executive Director and CEO. 
“Those who hold RPR credentials are not only among the top stenographic court reporters in the profession, but they also embark on a path of lifetime learning with continuing education requirements.”

Armstrong is a member of NCRA and works as a freelance court reporter for Seattle Deposition Reporters.

To be recognized as a RPR, candidates must pass a written knowledge test on industry best practices and a skills test that combines a challenging threshold of both speed and accuracy. RPR-certified court reporters are in high demand among the nation’s premier law firms, courthouses and other scenarios in which a reliable, accurate transcript of proceedings is required.

“I’m so fortunate to have found such a stimulating and rewarding career, and I’m proud to represent my profession and the NCRA with this hard-earned certification,” said Armstrong.

The National Court Reporters Association (NCRA) has been internationally recognized for promoting excellence among those who capture and convert the spoken word to text for more than 100 years.
