Record details

Our ASL Skills Certificate gives you an alternative option to learn ASL skills, but not become an interpreter. This is an excellent addition to those majoring in deaf education, special education, speech pathology, criminal justice and healthcare fields, to name a few. 

During your time here, we will teach you the intricacies of sign language and expand your communication skills. Through our curriculum you will also gain a greater understanding of Deaf culture. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn an exciting, practical skill and become a marketable asset in any career path you choose.
