The National Court Reporters Association (NCRA) administers a series of certifications so that consumers of reporting services can be assured of the level of expertise a reporter possesses.  All NCRA certification holders are required to attain at least thirty hours of continuing education through seminars or other approved courses of study every three years.
The Registered Diplomate Reporter (RDR) represents the top tier of achievement in the National Court Reporters Association.  This certification was designed to recognize the experience and knowledge of the profession's elite.

In order to sit for the RDR examination, candidates must first be a Registered Merit Reporter (RMR) and be a member of NCRA for six continuous years.  They must then pass a rigorous examination focusing on reporting, transcript production, management, education, marketing, ethics, and professional issues.

Only the top one percent of reporters nationwide have achieved this distinction.  Lori A. Pulsifer, owner of QnA Court Reporting, LLC, is proud to have been the first RDR in Idaho.

The Registered Merit Reporter (RMR) is an attainment of distinction.  Having first earned their Registered Professional Reporter (RPR) certification, RMR candidates, in addition to passing a comprehensive written examination, must also demonstrate their proficiency by reporting and transcribing material dictated at speeds up to 260 words per minute with 95 percent accuracy.

Lori A. Pulsifer has achieved RMR status, joining the top five percent of reporters nationwide.

The Registered Professional Reporter (RPR) examination is a nationally-recognized certification validating a reporter's competency.  Each RPR candidate must be an NCRA member in good standing, pass a written exam on a wide range of reporting-related subjects, and prove his or her entry-level competence by reporting and transcribing material dictated at speeds up to 225 words per minute with 95 percent accuracy.

Lori A. Pulsifer has passed the Registered Professional Reporter examination, and the reporters she contracts with have also passed the RPR examination.

The Idaho Certified Shorthand Reporters Board mandates that all individuals practicing court reporting in Idaho must first pass a written knowledge examination and then demonstrate shorthand proficiency at speeds up to 225 words per minute.  QnA's reporters are certified by the State of Idaho Bureau of Occupational Licenses.  Lori Pulsifer holds Idaho CSR No. 354.

Advances in technology now make it possible for a highly-skilled court reporter to instantaneously translate the spoken word into English via computer and transmit the text to an attorney's computer by a process known as "realtime reporting."  This method is especially useful for hearing-impaired litigants or when instant access to the record is necessary for impeachment, clarity, or summarization.

Through testing, a Certified Realtime Reporter (CRR) exhibits the superior concentration ability necessary to differentiate homonyms and correctly transcribe technical terms and proper names at speeds up to 3.5 words per second, thereby producing a highly accurate and instantaneous text feed.

Lori Pulsifer of QnA Court Reporting, LLC, is a Certified Realtime Reporter and possesses the technical knowledge and experience necessary for on-site realtime hookup. 

Using this same technology, Lori can also assist your hearing-impaired clients, allowing them to better communicate with you and to participate more fully in the legal process.
