The cost of captioning school is dependent on the type of school you enter. The most common schools are proprietary or for profit schools. Check with the school to be sure comprehensive captioning training is included in the tuition. If not, there can be a substantial additional cost to acquire this portion of your training.
Community colleges are substantially less expensive than proprietary schools, but you need to be certain the program is geared for both realtime court reporting and broadcast closed captioning. The Court Reporting and Captioning at Home distance education program is a fraction of the cost of traditional captioning training, and all support is provided by credentialed professionals, with extensive experience in closed captioning and realtime writing .
