FOR DEAF INTERPRETERS OR PARTICIPANTS ONLY
Are you a Deaf interpreter? Do you want to get licensed and certified? One of the first steps in becoming a professional interpreter is a thorough knowledge of the NAD-RID Code of Professional Conduct (CPC). Join us as we go through the CPC in its entirety to ensure that you understand all the tenets and the illustrative behaviors that accompany each tenet. We will discuss scenarios to ensure that you can apply what you have learned.

This training will meet 8 of the 40 hours required by RID for Deaf interpreters to sit for the CDI Knowledge (Written) Test, and will meet the requirement that 8 hours be on the CPC.
