The Legal Interpretation: Spanish Certificate Program helps to train bilingual students for the profession of certified court interpreter, a profession much in demand given the linguistic diversity of the state of Nevada. This unique program can also prepare qualified students for a career as a certified interpreter for any industry that needs to serve individuals with limited English skills, including government agencies, corporations, hospitals and telecoms. Bilingual persons already employed in another capacity can increase their skills and their remuneration with this formal interpreting certification.
PREREQUISITE: Students must be fluent in Spanish and English and must provide proof of proficiency in both languages. Students can submit one of following documents below or can take the Oral Proficiency Interview by Computer (OPIc) placement exam through Language Testing International. The ACTFL OPIc is a 30-minute speaking test delivered online or over the phone. The OPIc assesses proficiency across the entire ACTFL scale. The cost of the proficiency test is $95 and can be done from home or at the UNLV Paradise Campus. If students want to take the exam from UNLV Paradise Campus, an appointment time will need to be set up through UNLV Testing services. Testing Services can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 702-895-5928.
