Back by Popular Demand: One22 Presents The Community Interpreter® International Training Program

October 10-17, 2018

One22 is pleased to announce the return of The Community Interpreter training. This professional development opportunity addresses the growing need for interpreters who are skilled in the ethics of the profession as well as bilingual ability.

Businesses, government agencies, educational and social service providers, as well as concerned citizens are invited to participate in The Community Interpreter ® ,  the only national certificate program for community interpreting in the United States.

The 40-hour course requires mandatory language assessments prior to the start date, and the course sessions will run from October 10th through October 15th with an optional medical terminology session on October 16th and an introduction to simultaneous interpretation on October 17th.

Community interpreting is a growing profession that targets health care, education, human and social services. The use of qualified interpreters is promoted and endorsed by federal legislation, hospital accreditation agencies and many state and municipal laws.

The Community Interpreter is taught by Giovanna Carriero-Contreras, who has dedicated her life to the interpreting profession. She is the Founder & CEO of Cesco Linguistic Services. She chairs the U.S. national delegation for interpreting and translation at the International Standardization Organization  and authored the latest edition of the International Interpreter ® textbook.
