Remember that holding one or both NYSCRA certifications confers eligibility for provisional appointment into the New York State Unified Court System in lieu of an entrance exam.

Following the grading of exams, the committee will again offer a post-exam workshop focusing on common errors as identified by the graders. 

 

  

NYSCRA GAINS RECOGNITION FOR NYACR & NYRCR TESTS

NYSCRA is pleased to announce that the New York State Unified Court System will now recognize our voluntary certifications, the RCR and ACR, for provisional employment.  Our ACR and RCR members are immediately eligible to earn above-average salaries and receive both medical and vacation benefits.

Voluntary Certification Committee Chair, Debra A. Levinson, CSR-RMR-CRR-RCR, worked closely with OCA to encourage them to recognize NYSCRA’s certifications.  This means that members who hold the RCR or ACR certifications are not required to take an assessment test for an available position.  

We anticipate many reporters registering for our association’s voluntary exams. “Having that ACR or RCR is now like an insurance policy. You never know when the need for an employment change may present itself, and the NYS court system offers a really excellent package,” said Debra A. Levinson.

The New York State Court Reporters Association 2018 Convention was held October 12-14, 2018 at the fabulous Melville Marriott Long Island.
