Are you interested in becoming a Deaf interpreter? Join us as we discuss the role and function of Deaf interpreters. We will discuss what it takes to become a Deaf interpreter, including the training required to become licensed and certified as a Deaf interpreter. We will discuss the interpreting process and the tasks you need to know for each stage in the process, including preparation for service delivery, provision of service and post-service closure. We will explore the provision of interpreting services to a variety of consumers with a variety of communication modes.
