According to estimates, only 28 percent of court reporters actually work inside a courtroom. Many reporters operate on a freelance basis doing legal depositions or providing captioning services from a home office. Others work in television and educational settings or at private business meetings. 

The Sage College court reporting program trains you to work in the following occupations: court reporter, court stenographer, deposition reporter, hearing reporter, statement reporter, convention reporter, broadcast captioner, realtime reporter and more. Think flexibility!
