Business Informatics Center, a court reporting school based in Valley Stream, will encourage its student population to get involved with National Court Reporting and Captioning Week, Feb. 17-23, by engaging in a grassroots effort to promote the profession and educate local communities about the value of stenographic skills.
The awareness week is a nationwide effort organized by the National Court Reporters Association to highlight the contributions of court reporters and captioners and to showcase career opportunities. The week will be marked with promotional events and presentations at high schools about career opportunities, along with community demonstrations.
“Court reporting is consistently ranked as one of the top career options as it offers both flexibility and significant income potential,” Constance Brown, president of Business Informatics Center, said. “Court reporters and captioners are able to begin a career without a traditional four-year college degree, and these highly trained professionals experience the continuous professional growth associated with an in-demand career.”
Business Informatics Center was founded in 1983 and provides upwardly working adults and recent graduates with legal and business career preparation. The college also offers adult education courses in computer applications.
