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.

Modules

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.

Webshops

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.
