Project Steno, through the generous support of its donors, has purchased student Wave machines from Stenograph. These steno machines will be used by military spouses who enroll in Basic Training, a free six-week intro steno program, an integral part of Project Steno’s Cover Your BasesTMprogram.
PROJECT STENO’S COVER YOUR BASESTM PROGRAM
An Introduction to the Stenographic Reporting Profession
A plan for introducing stenographic theory to military spouses, family members, and service members transitioning to the civilian workplace.
Project Steno’s Cover Your Bases ProgramTM is designed to bring awareness of the court reporting and captioning professions to military bases nationwide. Volunteers will deliver Nancy Varallo’s Basic TrainingTM and speak about the many career options available today. The program is a hands-on opportunity to learn the basics of steno theory in a virtual classroom environment over six weeks, one day each week, as a first step before entering a two-year educational program. All materials (textbook/steno machines) will be provided at no charge. Students will be encouraged to practice two hours each day between the six sessions.
This six-week program offers a self-selection opportunity that helps one answer some important questions. Is stenographic reporting the right career for me? Do I have the interest, natural dexterity, grammar skills, motivation and disclipine required to complete the next two years of school? If the answer is Yes, Project Steno will connect candidates who graduate from Basic Training with schools that accept GI benefits. If candidates are not eligible for GI benefits, Project Steno will direct them to our tuition assistance program.
