The two-day, language neutral, Consecutive Interpretation Strategies Boot Camp is a workshop ideal for candidates who are preparing for the NCSC oral certification exam*; for those seeking opportunities to hone their consecutive interpretation skills and strategies; and for those pursuing continuing education credits.
The goal of the sessions is to provide the participant the tools necessary to objectively assess his/her consecutive interpreting performance. This objective analysis will, in turn, allow participant to identify the problem areas hindering his/her performance. The participant should leave the session with some of the strategies necessary to have less random and more criteria-driven independent practice.
This workshop has been approved for 12 CEUs by the Pennsylvania and Delaware AOC.
Date: September 14 and 21, 2013 9:00 am – 4:00 pm each day.

Note-taking is an important skill for court interpreters as they perform their daily work. Efficient note-taking can help the interpreter preserve what was said. Conversely, notes taken randomly and without criteria can hinder interpreter’s performance.
The most frequent questions arising when tackling note-taking are what to note, how and how much to note while managing the tasks of listening, analyzing the incoming speech and producing speech.
The goal of the two-day, language neutral, NOTE-TAKING 101 workshop is to give the participant the necessary tools to develop solid note-taking skills on which to build with practice and experience.
This workshop has been approved for 12 CEUs by the Pennsylvania and Delaware AOC.
