A person seeking to be licensed as a court interpreter must, prior to filing an application with the department, satisfactorily complete a department approved orientation course of at least six hours.
Working interpreters who are preparing to take the State Licensing exam, as well as anyone who is aspiring to become a Court Interpreter and wants to know what it all entails.
The class is NOT language-specific, so ALL LANGUAGE PAIRS ARE WELCOME!
SPACE IN THIS ONLINE CLASSES IS LIMITED IN ORDER TO ALLOW PARTICIPATION FROM ALL.
This court interpreter course will give you an overview of the knowledge and skills needed for courtroom interpreting, as well as a review of the ethics necessary for Judiciary Interpreters, some basic legal terminology and an overview of the Texas law enforcement, corrections and courts systems.
Come learn in a fun and relaxed environment. I teach this course online so you can take it in your pajamas (you know you were thinking that!).
I've been teaching this course for a long time with hands-on experience. I have legitimately, "been there done that".
I like to share the wealth of knowledge. If you've got the questions, I've got answers!
After you have completed the 6 hours of orientation, you will receive an E-Certificate that you will be able to send in to the JBCC along with the remaining required documentation for the application.
