Join us for the CCRA FALL SEMINAR!
Continuing Education - General Information
As of January 1, 1999, all shorthand reporters are required to be licensed in order to report arbitration proceedings, administrative hearings, depositions, or other proceedings or matters for use in the courts in Connecticut. 
Once licensed, you are also required to obtain 30 hours of continuing education every three years to maintain your Connecticut license, or 10 hours for each full year of licensure.  Thirty hours is equal to 3.0 CEUs under NCRA's current system.  If you attend a seminar worth 1.5 CEUs from NCRA, that would be 15 hours, or half your Connecticut LSR requirement.
Many seminars are being offered by NCRA, state associations, CAT companies and other vendors.  Some are even offered over the telephone or the Internet.  Anything that is approved by NCRA for CEUs will count toward your CT LSR requirement. 
As of January 1, 2008, CCRA will not only submit your CEUs obtained at any CCRA-sponsored event to NCRA, members and nonmembers alike, but will keep track of all those CEUs to be accessible online for MEMBERS ONLY!!  Your dues need to be paid in full and up to date with no lapse in membership for this information to be accessible online.  When members login to the Web site, simply go to the Members Only Access area to obtain that information.
NCRA will also keep track of CEUs for members and nonmembers of their organization, but they have to have the information to keep track of it.  Contact NCRA before you do continuing education to make sure you know how to get credit.
Be sure to contact NCRA directly for information on how to have NCRA keep track of your credits if you're not an RPR or a member.  This service is free!!

Note:  There is a maximum amount of credit you can receive for certain activities for each three-year period.  The maximum for speedbuilding is 5 hours, or .5 CEUs, and the maximum for mentoring is 12 hours, or 1.2 CEUs.  Make sure you check with NCRA for their guidelines.
Renewal forms will be sent by the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection prior to the expiration date.
