Each module includes targeted guidance for overcoming the barriers that indigenous interpreters encounter daily in many different service settings.

You’ll see such modules as:

  • Introduction to Indigenous Interpreting

  • Interpreting Ethics

  • Cultural Mediation

  • Introduction to Sight Translation

  • Legal Interpreting for Indigenous Interpreters

  • Mental Health Interpreting

  • Introduction to Consecutive Note-taking

The full curriculum represents a 63-hour, 20-module training program. Don’t let the page count put you off: this training manual was made to be used. Ample white space and generous font size, along with the use of full-color in diagrams and images throughout, make this a thoroughly readable text for trainers and training participants alike.
