More about our Mentoring Program:

Student members have the opportunity to be assigned to a mentor.  No one understands court reporting like another court reporter.  KCRA offers a mentor program as a way to bring court reporters and students together so that students can get guidance and encouragement that they need and so that today's court reporters can nurture the future of our profession.

Please join as a student member here.  If you wish to be assigned a mentor, indicate that request on your application form.


Dear Members or possible students:

If you know of anyone taking the CCR test On April 22, 2024, please pass this information on to them.

There will be a practice court reporter exam on March 25 in Topeka, KS given by OJA.  The registration form for the practice exam is on the website: You must register at least 5 days before the test. I hope anyone taking the CCR test in April will take advantage of this practice exam. Registration is at 8:30 and the exam at 9:00.  People taking the practice exam needs to have a current application on file.  This will be at the Judicial Center in Topeka.  See further information by clicking on their site above.
