• Interpreter Training

    To help meet the need for skilled interpreting professionals, the Community Training and Development Division of Community College of Allegheny County has developed a new, 175 hour intensified program of interpreter preparation. This non-credit program differs from CCAC’s Interpreting (915.1) Associate of Science 60-61 credit program. See details at American Sign Language–Interpreting (915.1).

    This nontraditional approach to interpreter education is ideal for individuals who have intermediate level ASL skills, and who already possess a degree (associates or above) in any field. It is also appropriate for working interpreters who currently lack sufficient opportunities for continued professional development.

    Important facts about the new CCAC Interpreting Skill Development program:

    • Non-credit program focusing on skill development through a combination of classes and workshops
    • Highly-qualified faculty providing instruction at continuing education prices
    • Opportunities for mentorship built into individualized plan
    • Central location easily accessed via major highways or by public transportation
    • Interview may be necessary for admission into the program
    • Class and workshop activities are designed to help participants to acquire competencies needed to pass the National Interpreter Certification Knowledge and Performance tests


    CCAC/GPRID cannot guarantee that participants in the program will pass the NIC tests or otherwise satisfy the qualification requirements established under Act 57.
