    Summary:Do you want to earn a new set of skills? Start a second career? Create a new stream of revenue for your business adding a new service? Provide an essential social service? Find out how telephone interpreting is changing the world of communication as we know it.
    Description
    In 90 minutes, open your world to a new profession as a telephone interpreter. The market is estimated at 600 million in the US plus 400 million in the rest of the world. If you speak two (or more) languages FLUENTLY, you may become a teleinterpreter.

    Attendees will understand what over-the-phone-interpreting (OPI) entails, as well as the skills and tools needed to develop an edge in this new profession. It is quickly replacing on-site interpreting to assist communication between doctors and patients, call centers and consumers, credit card companies and their users, insurance companies and claimants, investors and foreign partners, individuals in global social networks, and many others, including the public and government agencies - even the courts system.
    Target audience

At the end of this course, attendees will be able to decide if telephone interpreting is something they would like to pursue and, if so, the next steps to prepare for this new challenge.
