Course Overview

The Diploma of Interpreting provides foundational skills for new entrants to the interpreting industry. Students are prepared for work typically in the community and business domains which include sectors such as general health, welfare, education, tourism, and social services.  Interpreters are also prepared for non-complex disability assistance, preliminary police interviews, and other communication situations encountered in customer and community information environments. The course prepares students to interpret in informal business and workplace contexts where the consequences of errors in communicative intent can be readily managed.
