This course meets the minimum prerequisite training requirements set by NAATI for the Certified Provisional Interpreter test and is designed to prepare candidates by providing guidance on interpreting techniques; it does not aim to produce fully trained interpreters. This course is for candidates who are already in (or are well placed to be in) interpreting or language-related roles within a workplace or community.
Students will complete 4 units and 7 assessments over 16 weeks which will cover:
- Ethics in interpreting and translating
- Preparation for an interpreting or translating assignment
- Building glossaries
- Interpreting techniques
It is highly recommended that students allocate additional time during the week for private study.
The course is delivered in English and students are provided with the opportunity to receive language-specific feedback through a sample recording (not for assessment purposes).
South Australian State Government funding covers the cost of this course. You are eligible for this course if you are a South Australian resident and are a competent Indigenous and English language speaker.
NAATI tests for certification will be organised with NAATI staff following the successful completion of the short course.
