Frequently Asked Questions

How does "Distance Learning" work?

Distance Learning is a wonderful way to complete your continuing education requirements at your own pace, and at a location of your choosing. All the courses are suitable for interpreters of all languages. You will receive an MP3 audio file with the corresponding script. Each audio presentation is divided into different tracks that are comparable to different chapters in a book. Interpreters needing Continuing Education credits will have to complete a very user-friendly assignment. All the answers are in the lessons, with the exception of words you may want to look up in a dictionary.

What is the grading scale?

If you are using these courses to fulfill continuing education requirements, this is a pass/fail program. Because the answers to the true/false and fill in the blanks questions are provided in the lessons, it is impossible to fail. More important than the answers, is the fact that you will have the opportunity to listen to these audio presentations throughout your interpreting career. As you are in route to an assignment, simply listen to the lesson to review the essential elements of the subject matter!

How many hours of continuing education credits will each course provide?

Each course will provide 3 hours of continuing education credit.

How soon after I submit my coursework will I receive the certificate of completion?

You will receive your certificate of completion within 7 days. If you are very close to your deadline with the Judicial Council, you will be provided with the CIMCE numbers the very day your coursework arrives. You do not need to worry about post-office delays during the holidays.

What if I need assistance completing the coursework?

How late in the year can I submit the coursework?
