BUSINESS INTERPRETER TRAINING QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Will the Business interpreter Training Certificate lead to employment?
According to he U.S. Department of Labor, “Employment of interpreters and translators is projected to grow 24 percent from 2020 to 2030, much faster than the average for all occupations. About 10,400 openings for interpreters and translators are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire. Job prospects should be best for those who have professional certification.”
After I complete the Business Interpreter Certificate Training Course, will I be a “certified” interpreter?
There’s an important difference between “certification” and “certificate.” A “certificate” of training/education is offered by an educational institution or organization. Certification is offered by an independent organization after you take and pass an exam to become “certified.” The Business Interpreter Certificate Training Course will provide the knowledge and skills for you to prepare for the Certification Exam.
