Its One Year Certificate Program in Translation and Interpretation prepares the student to pass the court and medical interpreter tests given by the state government. A student is to submit an application with diploma, and a 10 minute tape introducing oneself in English and a foreign language. When admitted, 8 courses should be completed in a year, normally two courses per quarter. The courses cover: Consecutive interpreting, Sight translation, and Simultaneous interpreting. Interpreter’s Code of Ethics, legal vocabulary, criminal proceedings, and interpreting skills are taught. Upon completion, the school awards Certificate of Translation and Interpretation. The students then take a court interpreter test given by the State to start working in courts, or a medical interpreter test.

Our Instructors are all court certified interpreters with Master’s degree or PhD and teaching credentials. The classes are held conveniently in downtown and the parking is free.
