Learn about court reporting and captioning at Anoka Technical College Feb. 16

In recognition of the National Court Reporting and Captioning Week, and to let people know about the growing number of employment opportunities the profession offers, Anoka Technical College is hosting:

Court Reporting and Captioning Spring Fling
Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2016
4:30 to 6:30 pm
Anoka Tech Auditorium B

The public is encouraged to attend for a few minutes or the entire evening and bring along friends or family who are looking for a lucrative, high-demand career.

Attendees will meet local court reporting and captioning stars and have the opportunity to:

  • learn how to train to be a court reporter or captioner
  • tour a broadcast captioning station (learn how captions appear on TVs!)
  • see realtime demonstrations as used in court or depositions
  • see realtime demonstrations as used as an ADA accommodation (for example, how someone who loses their hearing can fully participate in a college course or religious service by using CART captioning)
  • enjoy food
  • try for raffle prizes
  • view a Veterans history project

Court reporters and captioners are vital contributors to our legal system and to ADA services, and there is an increasing demand for qualified people in the field.
