Students wishing to begin working on the Certificate in Community Interpreting and/or the Certificate in Medical Interpreting can begin classes January 3rd. Advising for Winter Quarter begins Monday, November 8th.
For students wishing to complete a certificate online, the Certificate in Community Interpreting will be offered completely online, except for the lab portion of INTP 110 Foundations of Interpreting Skills. Labs will be offered in various locations around the state of Washington. One INTP class will be offered each quarter for Winter, Spring and Summer. Computer skills may be transferred from another school or taken online. If there is enough interest in the online program, the Certificate in Medical Interpreting may be added to the online offerings, as most of the required courses are already offered online.
