Bravo Richland County, South Carolina

BRAVO Richland County!

Richland County recently awarded a $12,995 grant to help 25  sign language interpreters work toward nationally recognized legal certification.

The training will enable participants to increase their skill level in serving the deaf population of Richland County. The long term goal of the project is to enable interpreters to obtain legal interpreting certification from the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf.

Statewide there are only approximately 50 nationally certified interpreters. Only one of the 50 currently holds the national certification for legal interpreting.

The project will run Aug. 1 through June 1, 2011. Individuals who are interested in participating should contact Stoehr at (864) 577-7563 or e-mail her at kstoehr@scsdb.org.
