Enhancing Consecutive Note-Taking Skills

The "Enhancing Consecutive Note-Taking Skills" training session is designed to provide interpreters, whether novice or experienced, with comprehensive guidance on mastering the art of consecutive note-taking. In the dynamic world of interpretation, where accuracy and efficiency are paramount, the ability to take concise and accurate notes is a skill that can significantly elevate an interpreter's performance.

This training session aims to equip interpreters with the tools they need to excel in their roles. By mastering the art of capturing and converting spoken language, interpreters are better prepared to bridge linguistic and cultural divides in diverse professional settings.

This is a language-neutral training, meaning it will be taught in English.

Continuing education credits are approved for the following states: 

4 CEUs: NM, OK, OR, TN, WA (More states pending approval)

4.8 CEUs: FL
