Planet Depos, LLC, an international court reporting, interpretation and trial services firm, is pleased to announce the launch of Planet Institute, a program created to support court reporting students as they transition to become practicing deposition court reporters. The announcement comes at the start of National Court Reporting & Captioning Week designated by the National Court Reporters Association to recognize the court reporting and captioning professions and to help raise public awareness about the growing number of employment opportunities the career offers.
“It is with great pride that we announce the launch of Planet Institute, an opportunity for us to give back to a profession that has provided us with abundant learning and growth opportunities during the course of our careers as court reporters,” commented Lisa DiMonte, Chief Executive Officer of Planet Depos. “And to launch the program during National Court Reporting & Captioning Week makes the event extra special for all of us at Planet Depos.”
The mission of Planet Institute is to assist the court reporting graduate in successfully assimilating into the profession. Applicants to the program must be within the final speed requirements for completion or a recent graduate. Those accepted into Planet Institute are provided shadowing opportunities with seasoned and well-credentialed court reporters, followed by one-on-one mentoring in the areas of skills development, research, reporting procedures, transcript preparation, and overall professional development.
