Court interpreter training coming to Wisconsin Rapids

The Director of State Courts Office is accepting applications for court-interpreter training in June in Wisconsin Rapids.

The training session will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 1 and 2 at the Hotel Mead & Conference Center, 451 E. Grand Ave., Wisconsin Rapids. The fee for the training is $195, which will cover lunch and training materials.

The training will cover the fundamentals of court interpreting, giving those who attend an overview of the court system’s needs and expectations.

Going through the session is the first step toward becoming a Wisconsin-certified court interpreter. To be placed on a roster of certified interpreters, a candidate must also perform well on written and oral exams, undergo a character and fitness exam, take an oath of office and observe at least two hours of court proceedings.

For more information and to apply for the June training, visit the court system website or get in touch with Carmel Capati, the manager of the interpreter program in the Office of Court Operations, at carmel.capati@wicourts.gov or 608-266-8635.
