Are you studying for the consortium court interpreting exam, or are you hoping to become certified in medical interpreting? Either way, this class is for you! Interpreting certification exams have notoriously low passing rates, and that is primarily because candidates simply do not prepare properly. In this 3-hour course, you will learn the fundamentals of self-study, put your skills into practice by interpreting with new materials, and complete a mock exam.
