Hello, Daria.
Well, the course is designed for individuals who have at least some experience in interpreting or who have taken interpreting courses and understand the basic underpinnings of interpreting. If you don't understand the basic requirements of QUALITY interpreting (not just "interpreting for mom"), it might be difficult to follow some of the recommendations for healthcare interpreters. I would dare make the analogy with driving. Interpreting is "driving" in the general sense. Healthcare interpreting is driving a huge truck with a heavy load. This means that to drive the heavy truck you must first acquire "general driving" skills. If you have never driven a car, you will definitively not be able to start learning how to drive a truck. Now then, that is why we offer "the bundle" package for interpreters, so that you can take the first sessions of the Interpreting Workshops and acquire the information you need to work as an interpreter in the 21st century. Remember that once you purchase the bundle you have unlimited access to all the videos of each session, so you can revisit each course as many times as you feel necessary.

Let me know if you need any further information, and I hope to see you in the other courses first.... have a wonderful day!
