AQUINAS COURT-JUDICIAL-LEGAL INTERPRETER TRAINING PROGRAM

 

Get started in our new career with the fastest, most practical, and economic way to learn court interpreting.  With hands on training from industry professionals, you’ll be ready to interpret in various court hearings including trial and examination for discovery.
