- Acquire the fundamental skillset required to successfully train consecutive interpreters
Three thematic modules provide a solid grounding in the skill-and-task analysis for consecutive interpreting, cover the sequencing of training materials based on an incremental approach and focus on the diagnosis of recurring problems including the development of targeted solutions. Seeing the intended objective, which is to train court, medical, public service but also diplomatic interpreters, the certificate course does not comprise the development and teaching of a comprehensive note-taking system (see DAS in Interpreter Training).
