Firearms & Ballistics

What is the type of bullet with a flattened head? What’s the difference between a revolver and a handgun? These are just some of the things that an interpreter working in encounters that include firearms and ballistics needs to know.

This course offers you an in-depth look into categories of firearms, parts of a firearm and concepts used in ballistics. It also provides an extensive resource section and comprehensive glossary.

If taking the course with instructor evaluation, students must submit 1 interpretation exercise and 1 glossary in order to receive a certificate of completion.

Length of access: 1 month

Feedback from interpreters who took this course

“I liked it! Very useful to me...learned a lot about firearms, and had to go to Deaf community members to develop 'language-specific' output. Very beneficial to me as I really had no schema (just layman) about guns.” 
Susan Brule
