PHONE AND VIDEO REMOTE INTERPRETING CERTIFICATE TRAINING PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) can be a quick, easy and cost effective way of providing interpreting services. However, it can be quite a challenging mode of delivery for practitioners due to technical issues and its complex and cognitively demanding nature.
This course will explore Video Remote Interpreting through the perspective of all participants (clients, interpreters, service providers), and aim to teach learners how to employ certain strategies when they are faced with challenges and dilemmas. The course will also show learners how to use various Video Interpreting platforms through instructional videos.
This short course is composed of live instructor led interactive online classes, quizzes and instructional videos to establish best practice when working with this method.
WHY SHOULD I TAKE THE VIDEO REMOTE INTERPRETING TRAINING COURSE?
In-person or face-to-face interpretation is considered to be one of the best interpreting options and is the cornerstone of language services provided orally. At the same time, video remote interpreting is becoming widely utilized, especially at the present time.
If you speak a second language, you can work from home and create your own schedule. There is a tremendous amount of work available for remote interpreters – both phone and video – throughout the country.
This course will be addressing different approaches to language services that rely on speed and accuracy to ensure accuracy and understanding in communication with LEP patients.
