Skills Exam Memo


The exam registration process is two-fold:
First, applicants must apply for exam eligibility with the Judicial Branch Certification Commission (JBCC), each time sitting for the exam. If you have any questions regarding exam eligiblity, please direct them to the JBCC. Their contact information is listed at the bottom of their website. Even if you have been approved by the JBCC for License by Endorsement and only need to take the Written Exam, you must still apply for exam eligibilty for the Written Exam date you intend to sit for.

Second, applicants must register for the certification exam with the Texas Court Reporters Association (TCRA), which is administering the exam on behalf of the JBCC.


Dear Candidates, Court Reporting Professors, Family and Friends,
Please read the following reminders thoroughly.

1. Other than exam proctors or examinees waiting to register, there is to be no one within 100 feet of the registration area or the testing room during or after the exam. Each candidate may have one (1) person assist with setting up equipment during the allotted time for setup. After setting up, all guests will need to wait in another area in order to keep the noise level to a minimum. Guests will be informed when they may re-enter the exam room to assist with equipment after the exam is completed. No one may enter the exam room until ALL exams have been turned in.

2. In order to prevent a violation of our testing contract, it is imperative that testing candidates keep their candidate number solely to themselves. Testing results are to remain anonymous to other candidates, court reporting professors, family and friends in order to protect anonymity of the examinee. Examinees are not to provide their candidate number to anybody for viewing results.
