Legal Interpreter Certificate Program Info Session

In Texas, there is a particular need for legal interpreters that speak Spanish, in addition to languages of lesser diffusion such as Farsi, Tagalog and Punjabi. Are you interested in being a part of this growing career field?

Our program introduces students to the world of legal interpreting, preparing them to use their language skills both inside and outside the courtroom. In addition to courtroom procedures, students will learn the basics of legal and court interpretation as it is conducted on a daily basis. 

Join us for a free info session, and our instructor will provide an overview of the Legal Interpreter Certificate Program and answer your questions.
