2016 Cohort Training will be on:

Part 2 ) THURSDAY, JULY 12 AT 12 noon until SATURDAY, JULY 16 AT 6 p.m.


QUESTIONS: Please email Rosemary Wanis:
This is a closed invitation- only those who participated in the January training are eligible to participate in Part 2 (July).

Rosemary R. Wanis, MSW, MS, CDI is offering two separate trainings and you are required to attend BOTH trainings as you seek to meet your goal of becoming a CDI. This training is Part 2.

Part 2: Summer Training: Focus on skill development, models/theories of interpreting, performance interpreting, and team interpreting

After attending the training you may feel more prepared to take the written RID CDI exams; however, this is not the focus of the training. The focus of the January training is to give you a comprehensive foundation of what it means, and what it takes, to be a CDI. The focus of the Summer training is to give you foundational skills and experience from which to begin your journey as a Deaf Interpreter Professional.

All of you are encouraged to contact your RID affiliate chapter for financial support/sponsorship as well as your Department of Rehabilitation Counselor to determine if you might be eligible for financial aid.
