CDI Program in Colorado

:::::ALERT TO ALL DEAF INTERPRETERS::::

Excerpted e-mail from Veditz Center's Bucky:
"We are looking for more applicants and the deadline is next Friday, July 16.
Information on this is at www.veditzcenter.org/cdi-program and they can email us at cdiprogram@veditzcenter.org for more information."

It is a nine-month program in Colorado offering 11 workshops and 22 workgroups, starting in Fall 2010, on training Deaf interpreters for CDI written and performance tests
Excellent presenters, Trenton Marsh, Jimmy Beldon and more, will lead the workshops/workgroups. 
Sounds like a great program!!

I think all Deaf interpreters in Colorado and nearby states should sign up for the series-- and for some Deaf Interpreters (certified or non-certified) who can fly out for a workshop or two, you can check out when their workshops are and sign up for some CEUs.
It is not often you see an comprehensive program that offers series of Deaf interpreting workshops-- Road to Deaf Interpreting is in Massachusetts which is a bit far for the West Coast folks, so CDI Program in Colorado is an excellent choice for those who live in mid-America and nearby West coast states.

SO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY!
