Terp Talk: Let's Talk CPC - Tenet Two: Professional Skill & Knowledge (.2 PS CEUs)

  • Wilson Community College Room E101 Wilson, NC (map)

Workshop Description: The RID Code of Professional Conduct Tenet Two will be the topic of discussion for this Terp Talk. Even if one is not RID certified, as an interpreter/interpreting student there is an obligation to understand the scope of professionalism, professional skills and knowledge necessary to interpret in specific settings. This dialogue will be guided by the RID CPC. Educational Objectives: Participants will consider the consequences of failure to possess necessary skill and knowledge for given settings while appropriate skill and knowledge will be defined for said settings. Facilitated dialogue will explore avenues to further develop skill and knowledge as a working interpreter without compromising the quality of services provided to consumers.

Terp Talks are conducted in a roundtable format of dialogue and facilitated learning opportunities. These sessions are hosted by the Eastern regional committee of NCRID. Terp Talks address a wide range of topics related to interpreting, Deaf culture, and shared interest to ultimately improve the quality of interpreting services provided to Deaf and Hearing consumers. These sessions strive to also enhance the camaraderie among professional interpreters, interpreting students, and Deaf and Hearing consumers.
