Project Level Up has created a self-directed track that is open to anyone who wants to take their abilities to the next level related to interpreting in healthcare settings. You could be a certified or non certified interpreter, a working professional, or a lifelong learner, to name a few examples. These are the courses in development that you can tap in to raise your knowledge and skills.
This schedule is our best projection for when resources will be available.
This webshop provides an overview of structures of oppression and privilege using the theory of kyriarchy. It also discusses intersectionality within the Deaf, DeafBlind, and hard of hearing communities.
Healthcare systems can be hard to access and navigate for patients, family members, and advocates. This 20 hour module provides sign language interpreters the foundational understanding of healthcare systems. It will cover the additional barriers Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing individuals experience and how those impact health outcomes. Through a systems approach interpreters can facilitate the connection between Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing individuals and healthcare systems.

Webshops & Modules
April – August
Topics will include: Public Health, Audiology: A Deaf Perspective, Healthcare’s Impact on Employment, Human Sexuality, and more.
Modules are interactive online classes. Participants are expected to invest about 20 hours of work over five weeks for each module. There are no required meeting times, but we’ve designed the content for weekly work. All work must be completed by the ending date of the module.
These self-directed webshops are interactive mini online classes. They require about 1.5 hours of time. Mini-lectures throughout the webshops are presented in ASL. English captions are available if needed.
