Limited Access for Court Reporters
Court reporters who are new to NextGen CM/ECF now can become trained in our court and certified to file transcripts using CM/ECF and their PACER username and password.
If you are a court reporter wishing to file transcripts via CM/ECF, you must take our training and register to E-file at pacer.uscourts.gov.
Each bankruptcy court has different filing requirements, and our CM/ECF training focuses on our court-specific filing requirements.
Your CM/ECF training consists of these components:
- Self-paced training videos containing specifics for CM/ECF filing in our court
- Our CM/ECF test, which involves answering quiz questions based on the lessons and videos and filing documents in our CM/ECF training database
Follow these six steps to begin your training for limited access to our NextGen CM/ECF:
|1||Complete the registration form.|
