This program is designed to train interpreters who work throughout the justice system. Only signed language interpreters who already hold certification are eligible for this program. Although signed language interpreters are not required to go through the screening tests, they are required to fill out our online admission application and provide proof of certification.
In addition, Registry of Interpreter for the Deaf (RID) certified interpreters will be able to earn RID CEUs for participating in our programs through RID's Independent Study program. Participants will be responsible for initiating this process with a Certification Maintenance Program Sponsor. This program is also an excellent starting point for those interested in taking the Special Certificate: Legal (SC:L) test with RID.
Attorneys, experienced certified signed language interpreters, and certified spoken language interpreters and translators with a variety of backgrounds have designed this interdisciplinary curriculum. The program also includes an internship.
