Saturdays from 11:00 – 1:00 eastern time. 

Project Steno’s Basic Training program (Basic Training Program Flyer) is a free introductory six-week program designed to introduce you to the rudiments of machine shorthand theory, the system used by professional court reporters to capture high-speed speech using a stenotype machine. In just a couple of hours of “class” time each week plus at-home practice time, you’ll learn how to write simple words in machine shorthand and become familiar with the steno keyboard. By the end of the program, you’ll know whether a career in court reporting or captioning appeals to you!

Attend in person or online.  A steno machine will be provided for you.  Register at https://projectsteno.org/students/.
