Preparing for EIPA

Friday, November 18, 2016; 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. & Saturday, November 19, 2016; 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. NTC Center for Business and Industry
Taking the Educational Interpreter Performance Assessment (EIPA) can feel like a daunting task.  This course is designed to give interpreters tools to prepare for the EIPA. Students will examine ASL to spoken English, spoken English to ASL, use of space and the concept of figure ground. Students will also learn skill building activities to help each one become the skilled interpreter they strive to be. 
To earn one credit/RID 1.5 CEUs, students must be present both days of the in-person course and complete an external assignment on BlackBoard.
This class will be held at the NTC Center for Business and Industry, 1000 W. Campus Drive, Wausau, Wisc. Students are encouraged to bring their iPad or laptop to class.
