In 2006 Aquinas Institute started offering the Aquinas Court-Judicial-Legal Interpreter Training™  to court interpreters and to the public.  Over the years, the training program has been improved from a one-day training to a 7-day training.   With the successes of its graduates, Aquinas Institute has been well known for its training trademark.  Until 2012 only the Vancouver Community College and Aquinas Institute offered training programs for court interpreters.  The VCC ceased its court interpreting program in 2012 while Aquinas Institute remained to be a leading  training centre for court interpreters in the Province of British Columbia.
