Deaf Interpreter Training in Texas

Saw this posted online at the Deaf Caucus group, so I am copying and pasting the flier to reach a wider audience-- with all key words linked so you can look up who are the trainers, where it is hosted at, and more. Making your life much easier. :-) 


Deaf Interpreter Training
This training, over a one week period, May 30-June 4, 2010, will be held at SWCID in Big Spring, Texas and is for individuals who are deaf and are interested in becoming a deaf interpreter, and for deaf interpreters who want to upgrade or improve their interpreting skills. The sessions will provide an environment in which participants can stretch their interpreting horizons and explore new approaches in this specialty area.

A highly qualified staff will conduct the training and will include expert trainers in deaf interpreting: Byron Bridges, Eileen Forestal, Debbie Peterson, Gino Gouby, and Chris Grooms (.pdf). Areas of focus will include professional roles and responsibilities, common business practices, laws and regulations regarding interpreting services, negotiating communication needs, self-assessment of interpreting performances, role and scope of service, dealing with testing anxieties, and more.

This training is limited to 40 participants.
The cost of the course is $250 for Texas residents and $350 for persons who reside out of state, which includes room and board fee to stay on campus for the week. There is a screening process.

RID and BEI CEUs are approved.
