Overview

If you enjoy getting your courtroom fix from TV shows, it’s time to put down the remote and join the action by attending the Court Support Services program.

This two-semester certificate program will prepare you to work with judges, lawyers, paralegals and the public, providing pre-court, in-session and post-court support. In this role you’ll safeguard the functioning of the courtroom, and by extension, the judicial process.

During your time in Court Support Services, you’ll participate in courtroom simulations and mock trials, working with real court equipment, court forms and court procedures. You’ll gain the skills to professionally communicate with court staff, stakeholders and the judiciary, administer oaths, and maintain order and decorum in a court or tribunal.

The program’s practicum component will provide you with an opportunity to shadow professionals in a real courtroom. Centennial’s faculty and staff will work closely with you to maximize this shadowing experience, which will ensure that you acquire the essential skills to:

  • Prepare exhibits
  • Distribute court dockets
  • Prepare court documents
  • Test audio and recording equipment
  • Set up, troubleshoot and monitor court video technology
  • Arrange adjournment dates
  • Coordinate and manage a jury panel

Please note: As a graduate of this program, you’ll be eligible to apply to the accredited court transcription course Court Transcription – Novice.
