~ a free upcoming online training opportunity ~ 

A collaboration between NCIEC and pepnet 2

Dates: May 19 - June 29, 2014


This introductory course (QuickClass) is designed for interpreters who are interested in learning more about working in the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) settings. Participants in this class will be introduced to VR as a system, explore the factors that make the system unique, meet the different professionals and consumers in VR, and address the particular ethical dilemmas that this setting poses. Participants will discuss the rewards of working in the VR system and learn more about the resources and supports that are available. Participants will be given an opportunity to assess their own suitability and attitudinal aptitude for working in this interesting and diverse environment.

Facilitators: Kathy Schwabeland and Lisa Caringer of pepnet 2
