The Mark Kislingbury Academy of Court Reporting is an aptly named court reporting school, because it is the brainchild of Mark himself, and it is an “Academy” in the sense that it is very high-level training. Mark will incorporate all of his methods into the training, many of which methods other schools outright reject (to their detriment).
This is no ordinary court reporting school. The Houston, Texas Academy of Court Reporting will only accept students who demonstrate a strong desire to work hard, play by the rules, and who are willing to do what it takes to graduate quickly and pursue excellence in the numerous opportunities open to those with high court reporting skills. Graduates of The Mark Kislingbury Academy of Court Reporting will be able to pursue lucrative and exciting careers in: official court reporting, freelance court reporting, CART providing, broadcast captioning, etc.
Mark Kislingbury's two-pillared system involving learning to write short, and learning how to practice at high speeds (which is the same exact system he used to win his contests and achieve his world record), are in direct conflict with the way the majority of court reporting schools have been teaching for at least the past 20 years. Mark believes that other schools are teaching faulty methods, which burden students with impractical techniques that actually prohibit most of those students from ever graduating. This essentially means these students will have spent thousands of dollars for nothing.
Mark envisions a school environment and morale full of motivation and optimism, while at the same time featuring intense, determined training sessions.
Excellence in training and results are the key philosophies The Mark Kislingbury Academy of Court Reporting has been founded on.
