GTC Journey Track

Looking down at the legs and shoes of two people standing on a sidewalk with the words Designed for self-starters, participants in this track will access resources from the Graduation to Certification program to move on a self-directed journey from graduation to certification. This track offered great flexibility and rewards, regardless of your location, where you are on your path, and your timeline for certification. It is ideal for novice interpreters who would like to work at their own pace.

2021 Offerings

We had two tracks:  one for hearing interpreters and one for deaf interpreters.  There may be some overlap, but from our pilot cohort with DIs, the CATIE Center recognizes that Deaf interpreters often have a different path to certification.

In 2021, we offered a module with light facilitation and the opportunity for ACET continuing education credit each month.  Support for the GTC Journey Track ended December 31, 2021.

You can access resources from the GTC Journey track as part of what we are sharing with the field.
