LEO is by far the most professional online option for my continuing education requirements!
Many thanks to you. You and your organization have been a dream to work with. Very professional and attentive. The courses are extremely interesting, valuable, and challenging.
Our company uses these glossaries to help linguists broaden their vocabulary during interpretation training. It is nice to have glossaries for specific fields available, it is very difficult to find linguistic resources such as these.
My certification expired and because of a hectic schedule I was unable to take the continuing education courses offered throughout the year. As I desperately looked for courses to complete the State of Florida certification requirements, I found out that LEO offered these courses and they could be taken from the comfort of your home. I immediately signed up and it was a great experience.
I think these courses are a great way to learn new vocab and interpreting skills from the convenience of your computer. I received impeccable customer service and support with my questions and I loved getting my continuing education hours taken care of this way.
I found these courses to be very accessible and convenient for working interpreters. The courses are also quite comprehensive in their topics. I was so impressed with the previous course that I decided to take more classes. The course was informational and educational and I learned a lot. I will use what I learned the next time I do CI.
I found these classes very informative and useful for my job as a court interpreter. The instructor’s personalized feedback was extremely valuable as well. The course support / administrator was always available, prompt, and helpful. Very good experience overall.
I am SO glad I found you guys during my last cycle for RID (SC:Legal) maintenance. I found your workshops amazingly thorough, and have recommended them to everyone I encounter. I will be starting my next cycle CEUs soon, and - to quote that song - "I only have eyes for you!". Glad that the State of California is now allowing interpreters to count your workshops - both instructor-led and non-instructor-led - for CEU maintenance.
This is a must have training guide for every court interpreter for a few reasons: first of all, it's not only a Legal glossary, although it contains one of the most comprehensive Arabic legal glossaries I have ever seen, but because it explains the whole legal process of which any professional legal interpreter should be aware of, starting from the Role of Legal interpreter, the skills that are needed for such job, the code of ethics. Then it takes you to an overview of legal systems: Criminal and civil Justice systems, overviews the immigration justice system, and there is a full chapter of how to get ready for an assignment, interpreting in a deposition, how to improve your skills and deal with cultural issues and problematic situations, an explanation for legal documents you will be working with, and a lot more. And it really doesn’t end with the legal glossary, but there is a full chapter of the phrases that are used in the court room translated professionally into Arabic. If I want to keep going, one page won't be enough to give this guide its worth. This is the most comprehensive Arabic legal guide I have ever seen.
I very much enjoyed these courses. It took me a bit to navigate the site on my phone, but once I learned how to use it, it was very easy. I especially like the fact that the courses are self-paced, so I was able to work on them between appointments, which was extremely helpful. To be honest, I took some courses from a different website and it seemed like they used the same platform (Moodle), but your courses were much more informative. Plus you have the quizzes, which allowed me to test my retention, which was something not available with the other guys. So once again, thank you very much and I look forward to taking more CEUs down the line.
The courses provide a wealth of information pertinent to court interpreting and the work we do on a daily basis. They also furnish the interpreter with important glossaries and terminology as well as definitions.

“Your online service is the best! I told all of my colleagues here in Houston to check out your online courses and they all agreed that the best way to renew LCI is to take CE courses from IEO.”
"After carefully reading all the material, I could not skip the “optional” section, since I found the course very fruitful, interesting and easy to understand. Congratulations on such engaging reading and AV materials. I appreciate the opportunity and will definitely take more courses and keep striving to improve my skills as a professional interpreter."
"Wow! There is SO MUCH they have to offer, and it isn't the same ol' workshops with little substance."
