Here is some feedback from others on these course's trainer:

"Claudia has a clear, practical, "natural" way of organizing and exposing a subject. She lets you feel at ease even with complex subjects and, in addition to the theoretical information, gives a lot of practical examples and materials/tools to use. This make her webinars not just very informative, but also immediately useful. Bravo!"
Gianfranco Zecchino

"Well designed and interesting course. Also the handouts and the vast materials sent after the webinar are very interesting and complete. As usual Claudia shows full commitment to the subjects and to the attendees. Very serious and professional."

Hello, students of the T06/2014 edition of our webinar Terminology Lists for Medicine & Healthcare - Level 1.

We have uploaded a large amount of companion materials that you may start accessing immediately.

PREPARATION materials should be downloaded from the following site:

http://goo.gl/Kgbau6
or
http://medicalhealthcareterminology.wikispaces.com/Terminology%20Lists%20for%20Medicine%20&%20Healthcare%20-%20Level%201%20(T06-W90)

When prompted, type in the user name BrauerTrainingProZ-Student-T06 and the password prosta;

HANDS-ON exercises will be suggested to be completed AFTER each session. Study tools and a large amount of reference materials are also provided - visit the above site to access and download those of interest to you.

You do NOT need to print anything that you do not need. Personally, I do not print anything any more. All materials are to be studied on your screen. Print only those materials that are useful to you in paper. In today's world, that should be very little amount of materials.

I am very excited to be able to "meet" you virtually next week and hope that you come prepared to receive a lot of information!

Best regards
Claudia

Do these seminars give me a certification or just a training to prepare for certification?

Certificate Vs CertificationDec 1, 2014

Hello, Deyse. We issue you a "Certificate of Attendance" for attending the webinar.
The session has a test that if completed and submitted (after the webinar) will earn you a "Certificate of Study in HC Terminology Level 1"
FYI, to earn a Certification as a Healthcare/Medical interpreter you normally have to take about 60 to 80 hours of learning sessions and/or proof of previous work as a healthcare/medical interpreter in the USA. See the National Board of Certification requirements at http://www.certifiedmedicalinterpreters.org/prerequisites. In other countries, the requirements are similar to these. So there is no way a 90 minute webinar would grant you a certification or prepare you for certification. There are many programs that you can attend that will prepare you for certification, provided you have the knowledge and experience to pass the tests. These programs usually are 40+ hrs in duration and again the National Board gives you guidelines on how to prepare for certification at http://www.certifiedmedicalinterpreters.org/how-prepare-certific.

Where to print out a certificateDec 2, 2014

Hi Claudia

Excited to join the webminar! However, I also have a question about how to print out a certificate from my proz.com profile. I checked out 'my course' area and found 2 courses I registered, but I didn't see anywhere I could print out a certificate for each session. Or will it be ready after I finish each course and pass the test?

Kindly advice.
Thank you very much

Where to print out a certificateDec 4, 2014

Hello, Jindaporn. If you go to your main profile page, in the section "Training Sessions Attended" you will see the link and the pdf to your Certificate of Attendance for Level 1. You cam view it on line or download it on pdf. As soon as you complete Level 2, your certificate for that level will be available. In addition to the Certificates of Attendance issued by ProZ, we are also issuing a Certificate of Completion if you complete and submit the test contained in the resources available with the materials shred for the course.

Good luck!
Claudia
