Reporters & Transcriptionists
In Ontario, anyone can buy an audio recorder and call themselves a "court reporter". At ASAP Reporting, that doesn't cut it.
At ASAP, we contract with a wide range of committed reporters and transcriptionists with a variety of qualifications and experience. All our new reporters are vigorously tested and undergo job shadowing to ensure they meet the highest professional standards.
Many of our contractors are graduates of court reporting courses at the Canadian Centre for Verbatim Studies and the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. Others have received accreditation from the Chartered Shorthand Reporters’ Association of Ontario (CSR) or the National Court Reporter’s Association (RPR, RMR, CRR & CRC).
Several of our real-time reporters and transcriptionists have achieved certification or been grandfathered under the Authorized Court Transcriptionist for Ontario program, which means we are well positioned to assist you with both your transcription and on-site requirements for Ontario court proceedings.
All of our reporters and transcriptionists have been security cleared with the federal government to a minimum of Enhanced Reliability, which means you can trust them with even the most confidential matters.
Their experience is vast and diverse, ranging from international matters such as criminal tribunals at The Hague, arbitrations and examinations around the world, and pre-trial and tribunal/court hearings at federal, provincial and municipal levels. They are technically proficient and comfortable with the most complex proceedings, specializing in complex terminology, such as pharmaceutical and indigenous matters.
Our staff and reporters work together as a team – collaborating to ensure a smooth, effective, accurate service and a quality transcript product every time!
