Local Court Reporter Earns National Certification

Monday, July 21, 2014

The National Court Reporters Association has announced that Jeannie Boleman has earned the nationally recognized Registered Merit Reporter certification, having demonstrated her ability to produce a high-quality verbatim record. RMR credentials distinguish stenographic court reporters and captioners as being among the top contributors to the profession in terms of reporting skills, transcript production, operating practices, and professionalism.

“Earning the RMR credential is quite a step forward in a court reporter’s career, especially given the amount of preparation and knowledge that successful candidates must possess to pass,” said Jim Cudahy, executive director and CEO of NCRA.

“RMRs are among the top stenographic court reporters in the profession, and are often offered greater opportunities for challenging and lucrative job assignments. NCRA currently has nearly 3,000 members who hold this prestigious certification.”

Ms. Boleman has been a freelance reporter for 30 years. She is from Ringgold, Ga., and is a member of NCRA.  Ms. Boleman works for Accurate Court Reporters. She also holds the professional certifications of Registered Professional Reporter and is a graduate of the Sparks Business College, Shelbyville, Il.

To be recognized as a RMR, candidates must pass a skills test that evaluates both speed and accuracy of various portions of court proceedings, including literary, jury charge, testimony, and questions and answers. 

“I am proud to say that I’m a member of NCRA and hold these certifications. I admire all the people that work hard to make these certifications possible,” Ms. Boleman said.
