Registration


For several years now, ACDHH and Arizona RID have offered a mentoring program, experimenting with different delivery methods along the way. We are, once again, changing things up!  We will approach mentoring in a “boot camp” style that will focus on one skill during an intensive 3-day session. Following the in-person component, apprentices will have the option of doing additional online practice with feedback from certified interpreters for 6-weeks. Our first Boot Camp session will focus on ASL to English Interpretation. Each day will focus on a particular feature/skill related to voice interpretation, such as register-appropriate word choice, the importance of vocal inflection, etc. Both Mentors and Apprentices will benefit from direct instruction, then Mentors will work with Apprentices to provide support and feedback during our MANY practice/application activities.  CEUs will be provided for both Apprentices and Mentors. The 3-day session is $50 for Apprentices and FREE for Mentors!  Following the in-person component, apprentices will have the option of doing additional online practice with feedback from certified interpreters for 6-weeks with additional CEUs available. The optional 6-week session is included in the cost of Boot Camp.

Satellite locations are available in Tucson and Flagstaff. Notify Vicki at v.bond@acdhh.az.gov if you plan to attend either satellite location
