All of Network’s reporters carry and maintain current certifications as required by the State Court Administrator’s Office. Every reporter employed by Network has taken the State’s CER Examination consisting of both a transcription exam requiring 95% accuracy to pass and a written knowledge exam covering ten categories and requiring 80% accuracy to pass.
Only certified reporters and recorders may record or prepare transcripts of proceedings held in Michigan courts or of depositions taken in Michigan as regulated by Michigan Court Rule 8.108(G). Certification is accomplished through a testing process administered by the Court Reporting and Recording Board of Review through the assistance of the State Court Administrative Office. The board determines the passing score.
Network Reporting has over 30 years’ experience preparing its employees for state certification and proudly maintains a 100% pass rate of the CER exam during all those years.
