Feedback from interpreters who took this course

“I passed both written and oral with fairly high scores. NBCMI has issued me a certification number already! Thank you for your course! The purchase of additional exercises being Instructor graded by a highly qualified IEO Instructor is the best investment, for the feedback from my personal Grader is invaluable. NBCMI is a great organization. I am only the 5th one nationwide to receive certification in my target language of Mandarin Chinese."

“It was a lot more difficult than I expected, but the information is very educational and will for sure help me in my overall education and practice.”
Marcela Coe
“It was beyond helpful. All quizzes gave me a better understanding on how the actual exam might be. A conversation with the instructor was invaluable as well. I not only received an overall evaluation of my assignments but also very helpful tips for an actual work environment.”
