Build interpreting skills to provide quality services

Many organizations use a variety of in-house staff, community interpreters, or contracted agency interpreters to perform language interpreting tasks in professional settings. With the increased demand for equal access to services, there is a need to further develop interpreting skills and industry terminology knowledge.
