Crabtree’s seminal cohort will focus on certified interpreters who are seeking to prepare for the BEI Advanced Interpreter certification exam. The cohort will meet over a period of nine weeks in a hybrid classroom design, including five in-person classes and four weeks of online course work. The in-person classes will consist of an introduction to peer mentoring, English to ASL interpreting theory, Spoken English to Signed English transliterating theory, ASL and Signed English to spoken English theory, and Sight Translation theory. Each class will teach theory and include intensive guided peer mentoring. The online coursework will include application of the prior week’s theoretical lessons through video assessments, taking advantage of the GoReact platform.
1.40 BEI CEUs pending. RID CEUs available through the PINRA process.
