2 ago I moved from Russia to US. Backhome I was studying at Kaliningrad State University, department of Linguistics and Intercultural Communication, T/I. I would like to continue my education and make a career in this field.

What are the essential stages to become a certified T/I specialist in US?
(I noticed that there are not too many schools offer T/I training programs or special cources).

I would be grateful if you can give me any information on this subject. What books and websites will be useful for those who is just about to start their journey?
