New! Remote Interpreting (Video and Phone)- REMOTE LEARNING COURSE
Calling Interpreters of all Languages! If you speak a second language, you can work from home and make your own hours. There is a tremendous amount of work available for Remote Interpreters--both phone and video--throughout the country. Offered in partnership with TransFluenci EDU, this 30-hour class meets twice a week for 5 weeks. Students will learn the ins and outs of remote interpreting which includes both video and over the phone (VRI and OPI). Students will learn how to set up their offices and computers to accept assignments from a number of companies who are actively searching for interpreters of all languages. The class will cover Medical and Legal Standards of Practice, ethics, HIPAA and intense practice sessions and simulations using a variety of platforms on a wide variety of topics, such as Medical Encounters, Depositions, Unemployment Hearings, Educational Hearings and Meetings such as IEP Meetings, and Due Process Hearings. In addition to intense classroom simulated practice, our instructor will provide advice on best practices, how to apply for assignments, and what to expect as compensation.
