THE FLORIDA PROFESSIONAL REPORTER™ IS NOW AVAILABLE VIRTUALLY!

In order to assist FCRA members and Florida stenographic court reporting industry professionals, FCRA is excited to announce the online launch of the Florida Rules and Ethics seminar and FPR™ certification examination. 

OPTION 1:  Florida Professional Reporter™ Certification
(Available to FCRA members only)
Cost:  $119

The full online certification course has nine sessions, a survey, and examination for those stenographic reporters who wish to obtain their FPR™ designation and for those managers, students, and instructors of stenographic reporting who wish to obtain their corresponding designation. 

Stenographic reporting candidates who wish to take the examination and use the FPR™ credential must be a participating member of FCRA.  As an FPR™, you will be required to complete and report 3.0 CEUs per three-year cycle to maintain your designation.  All other categories - FPM™, FPI™, FPS™, and FPR(S)™ - must be a member at their corresponding membership level and meet the same CEU requirements as described for FPR™ holders. FCRA is now offering a participating quarterly payment plan to aid with COVID-19 relief. To renew or join on the payment plan, please click here and choose "Participating Quarterly" as your member type.

Participants will have immediate access to the online seminar, and it can be taken at your leisure through the end of the day on October 12.  The seminar portion does not need to be completed in one sitting.  After completion of the seminar portion, a certificate will be awarded that the participant can submit to NCRA if they wish to apply for the 0.5 CEUs.*

Upon completion of the seminar portion, the certification examination will become available.  Testers will only have one opportunity to successfully pass the exam under your registration.  Please note that this offering of the seminar and exam will expire on Monday, October 12, 2020, and must be completed on or before that date.

OPTION 2:  Florida Rules and Ethics Seminar/FPR™ Refresher Course Only 
(Available to current FPR™ holders and all Florida stenographic court reporting industry professionals)
Cost:  $99

The seminar course has nine sessions and a survey for those Florida stenographic court reporting industry professionals (FCRA members and non-members) who wish to expand their knowledge base of Florida’s rules and ethics.  The seminar is also offered to current FPR™, FPM™, FPI™, FPS™, and FPR(S)™ holders who wish to take advantage of the updated seminar offering.  Former stenographic FPR™ holders must retake the full FPR™ seminar and examination to reactivate their designation.

Participants will have immediate access to the online seminar, and it can be taken at your leisure through the end of the day on October 12.  The seminar portion does not need to be completed in one sitting.  After completion of the seminar portion, a certificate will be awarded that the participant can submit to NCRA if they wish to apply for the 0.5 CEUs.*  Current FPR™ holders may take the refresher seminar once per three-year cycle for continuing education credits.  Please contact FCRA Headquarters at 407-774-7880 or by email if you need to verify your status.
