Licensure and Ethical Decision-Making for New Interpreters

1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Navigating the professional world of interpreting as a new interpreter can be a daunting prospect. This workshop will discuss licensure restrictions for provisional interpreters, where you can work without a license, how to determine if you’re qualified for an assignment, and what to do if you’re pressured to work where you don’t feel comfortable. By the end of this session, you should feel much better prepared to accept and decline assignments within ethical and legal parameters. Come engage in a valuable discussion and get your burning questions answered! Contact Vicki Bond to register. **Livestreaming available!**

Mentoring Boot Camp: ASL to English Interpretation

9:00 am - 4:00 pm

For several years now, ACDHH and Arizona RID have offered a mentoring program and we have experimented with different delivery methods. We are, once again, changing things up! We will approach mentoring in a “boot camp” style that will focus on one skill during an intensive 3-day session. Following the in-person component, apprentices will have the option of doing additional online practice with feedback from certified interpreters for 6-weeks. Our first Boot Camp session will focus on ASL to English Interpretation. Each day will focus on a particular feature/skill related to voice interpretation. Both Mentors and Apprentices will benefit from direct instruction, then Mentors will work with Apprentices to provide support and feedback during our MANY practice/application activities. CEUs will be provided for both Apprentices and Mentors. The 3-day session is $50 for Apprentices and FREE for Mentors! Contact Vicki Bond if you are interested in participating!
