How to Work With an Interpreter

Course Access: Lifetime
Course Overview

Have you ever struggled to communicate while using an interpreter?

As services providers, it is our duty to ensure best communication with our patients and/or clients. However, working with an interpreter can sometimes feel unnatural and awkward. 

ALTA’s training is designed to teach you the basics of language access legislation and give you a better understanding of why interpreters do what they do. Participants will learn the interpreter code of ethics, tips for working with interpreters, how to coach an untrained interpreter, and much more. 

“You can have the best interpreter in the world, but if you don’t know how to work with an interpreter, communication can still break down.”
