Continuing education: Court reporters
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.
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.
Verify you have completed your continuing education
While renewing, certify that you have completed 5 continuing education units within the previous year.
