Continuing education: Court reporters

We have a new online service for managing professional and business licenses. Learn how to set up account access. If you need help with the new service, please contact dolelicensingsupport@dol.wa.gov or 360.664.0200, option 7.

We expect a processing delay for mailed applications and renewals. Renew or apply online for faster processing of your license. Thank you for your patience and we apologize for any inconvenience.

Requirements

When you renew your court reporter certification, you must verify you have completed 5 continuing education units (CEU) since you last renewed your license.

  • 1 CEU = 60 minutes of education in an approved program.
  • Continuing education units can't be more than 1 year old.
  • You can't carry over excess CEUs from a previous year.

Approved programs

To meet your continuing education requirements you can only use approved programs directly related to your development as a court reporter. They're listed in WAC 308-14-100 (2): License renewal - Continuing education - Penalties.
