Hawaii Court Reporting Schools



In the state of Hawaii, court reporters are required to hold a certificate as issued by the Hawaii Supreme Court through the Board of Certified Shorthand Reporters.  The Hawaii Court Reporters & Captioners Association (HCRCA) is a valuable source of information regarding legislative changes and other issues affecting court reporters in Hawaii.  One of the most recent developments for court reporters involves the Hawaii Legislature’s passing of Act 110 which authorizes licensed Hawaii CSRs to swear in witnesses without the necessity of being a notary public.

Economic feasibility has hampered the diligent attempts which have been made to offer court reporter training at any of the physical educational campuses in Hawaii.  However, with the development of quality training programs available to students through the Internet, that limitation is no longer an issue.  Many reputable court reporting schools now offer programs which are available totally online and which prepare students to become licensed court reporters in Hawaii.

Becoming a Court Reporter in Hawaii

Requirements that must be met to become a licensed court reporter in Hawaii are detailed in the “Rules Governing Court Reporting in the State of Hawaii” as adopted by the Supreme Court of the State of Hawaii.  The minimum requirements an applicant must meet include being of good moral character, possessing a high school diploma or its equivalent, and having earned the designation “Tested RPR” by successfully passing the National Court Reporters Association’s (NCRA) Registered Professional Reporter (RPR) examination.  Passing the Hawaiian Written Knowledge Test is also required prior to receiving full certification.

The United States Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics does not currently provide information about the occupation of court reporting in the state of Hawaii.  According to the HCRCA, though, skilled court reporters are in high demand in the state of Hawaii.
