The clickety-clack of a courtroom transcriber might make it sound like an easy job, but a lot more preparation than you may think goes into the career of a court reporter. Court reporting programs could help teach you how to use the highly technical transcription equipment as well as cover topics such as touch-typing, closed-captioning, speed-building skills, and real-time translating services. You might also familiarize yourself with the legal language used in official proceedings. Court reporting associate's and bachelor's degree programs often last between two and four years, on average, depending on your course load.
