Sign Language Interpreting
Welcome to TJC’s Sign Language Interpreter Training Program!
Twice Awarded Exemplary Status Awarded
Change is in the air! The department of the Sign Language Interpreter Training Program continues to modify its curriculum to meet the demands and requirements of the Board for Evaluation of Interpreters (BEI) Exams and the National Interpreter Certificate exam. As you browse our site, you will find information about our Associate of Applied Science Degree and our new Advanced Certificates in Healthcare and Legal Interpreting. In addition, we offer an ASL Skills Certificate for people who do not want to become an interpreter but want ASL Skills.
One thing that has not changed is the great need for certified sign language interpreters not only in Texas but throughout the United States!
