NASHVILLE – Starting July 1, 2015, the Tennessee Board of Court Reporting will be transferred to the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance’s (TDCI) Division of Regulatory Boards.
The change, which was approved this year by the Legislature and received final approval by Governor Bill Haslam, will create greater efficiency for licensees and consumers.
TDCI’s Division of Regulatory Boards administers a vast majority of the professional licenses in Tennessee by licensing over 240,000 Tennesseans within more than 25 boards, commissions and programs.
“TDCI will provide many of the features that licensees have requested such as online payments, renewals, and viewing continuing education transcripts,” said Nikole Avers, who will serve as the board’s executive director. “Once this transition is fully implemented, licensees will see benefits that will help them professionally.”
The Board of Court Reporting was formerly overseen by the Administrative Office of the Courts. Currently, there are over 500 licensed court reporters in Tennessee.
TDCI is striving to make this transition seamless for all licensed court reporters. Please contact TDCI with any concerns or questions at (615) 741-1831 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
