//Vocalink Announces TCI Schedule for 2015

We are excited to announce that we have set the dates for the Dayton/Cincinnati area TCI classes for 2015.

What is The Community Interpreter training program?

If you want to become a community interpreter, come and attend the most respected program for community interpreting in the U.S. Whether you are a bilingual employee, a contract interpreter or someone starting out, you need a training certificate to interpret. A 40-hour training certificate is now the minimum requirement in the field.

Training is vital for interpreters. Without it, you can make errors that lead to mistakes, misunderstandings, lost benefits or poor outcomes.  Untrained interpreters may even put lives in danger.

Vocalink is a licensed Train the Trainer of The Community Interpreter®.  TCI is the first and only national 40-hour certificate program for community interpreting designed for true bi-lingual interpreters.  This course covers ethics and conduct, basic skills (from pre-session to post-session), positioning, terminology, modes of interpreting, steps for sight translation, intervention strategies, cultural mediation, and other vital skills and protocols.

Role plays, activities and group exercises give you hands-on experience. Video segments offer demonstrations, and the program comes with the most comprehensive training manual in the field. The program concludes with a two-hour written assessment on the last day of training.

Vocalink will be offering this course in our Dayton and Cincinnati market during the following dates:

  • FEBRUARY 5,6,7,13 and 14
  • MARCH 19,20,21,27 and 28
  • APRIL 30, MAY 1,2,8 and 9
  • JUNE 11,12,13,19 and 20
  • JULY 30, 31 AUGUST 1,7 and 8
