Finally, I've found a way to combine my love for court interpreting with my love for teaching. My fellow court interpreters have always told me that they can always count on my to provide a link or reference for any question they send my way--a natural expression of the teacher inside. From tutoring my own classmates in Spanish during college, to providing customized business English training for managers in a major multinational tech company, to teaching university-level English courses for international students: I admit it, everyone who told me "you should be a teacher" was right.

I am a Master Licensed Court in Interpreter (TX) and ATA Certified Translator with more than seven years of professional interpreting experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
This course is in development and is projected to launch in mid-2016. Once it is launched, you can begin the course whenever you want and you will have 30 days to complete the self-paced online lectures and exercises. Then sign up for a monthly online live session (first Monday of each month) to practice what you've learned and get answers to your burning questions.
How long do I have access to the course?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for thirty days - across any and all devices you own. Once you complete the course (on-demand component + live online session), you will receive the certificate of completion required by JBCC to apply for licensure as a Licensed Court Interpreter.
When are the monthly live sessions?
We hold live sessions at 7:00 PM Central Time on the first Monday of every month.
Does this course fulfill the JBCC orientation requirement?
Yes. JBCC has approved this course and the certificate of completion you receive can be submitted along with your other application materials.
Will this course prepare me for the court interpreting exams?
This is not a test preparation course. The purpose of the orientation is to provide an introduction to the modes of interpreting, the court interpreting profession, and the licensing process. You will, however, get an overview of the licensing exams so you can get an idea of your readiness for the exams. We will be rolling out intensive online test preparation courses later in 2016.
