This training is limited to 40 participants. I was interviewed by Ann Horn, the program coordinator and was one of chosen out of 300 applicants.

I am currently in an Interpreter Training Program at Lone Star College- North Harris College in Houston. I will graduate in May 2011 with AAS degree.

This training, over a one week period, May 30-June 4, 2010, is for individuals who are deaf and are interested in becoming a deaf interpreter, and for deaf interpreters who want to upgrade or improve their interpreting skills. The sessions will provide an environment in which participants can stretch their interpreting horizons and explore new approaches in this specialty area. A highly qualified staff will conduct the training and will include expert trainers in deaf interpreting: Byron Bridges, Eileen Forestal, Debbie Peterson, Gino Gouby, and Chris Grooms. Areas of focus will include professional roles and responsibilities, common business practices, laws and regulations regarding interpreting services, negotiating communication needs, self-assessment of interpreting performances, role and scope of service, dealing with testing anxieties, and more. Some homework will be required.

The cost of the course is $250 for Texas residents and $350 for persons who reside out of state, which includes room and board fee to stay on campus for the week. **I got an advocacy covered $100; which still leaves me $150 for the course.

May 30 - June 4, 2010 Class Schedule: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, Monday - Friday, Southwest Collegiate Institute for the Deaf , (SWCID) campus, 3200 Avenue C, Big Spring, Texas.

This training is limited to 40 participants. I was interviewed by Ann Horn, the program coordinator and was one of chosen out of 300 applicants. I really want to go to this training because that will benefits for my future and will give my 100% commit to the Deaf community after I graduate from Interpreter Training Program. Your contribution will go to my training that includes room, board and my transportation to Big Spring from Houston, Texas. My instructor, Brian Kilpatrick and program chairperson, Charles Trevino at Lone Star College- North Harris College will back me up and give you good reputation about me.

Please make sure to spread the word to the deaf community, interpreter agency, friends, family. You have no idea how much I am truly appreciates your generosity.

Thank you for your time and greatly appreciate!! If you have any question, please do contact me. My contact info is lb13@tmail.com.
