Georgia Certified Court Reporters CE Preapprovals for 2020
Also available in a PDF format – Click Here

The Georgia Board of Court Reporting (BCR) promotes interaction and exchanging ideas among court reporters in a professional educational setting. The following calendar lists courses that are pre-approved by the Board for continuing education credit. Updates are posted frequently and throughout the year.

Please note that all hours must be submitted to the Georgia Courts Registrar within 30 days after attending an educational activity (or by December 31, whichever is earlier).

We urge the submission of hours as soon as you complete the CE event, preferably before December 15, as confirmations for receiving hours will no longer be sent out following that date. While hours submitted later will still apply to 2020 and can be submitted until December 31, they will be processed in 2021. Please remember that staff will deny any CE submissions filed after 30 days, as described in the Continuing Education manual.

Staff will add all preapprovals within 72 hours of the course’s approval. Please check back frequently to see new courses as they are listed.

Note: CE programs conducted by the national and State Court Reporter Associations outside Georgia are generally approved for the educational contact hours or CEUs. However, final approval of credit for Georgia is always subject to the Continuing Education Manual guidelines for Georgia Certified Court Reporters; for instance, no credit is given for tours, business meetings, or home study book reviews.
