It can be overwhelming to prepare for national certification, in addition to staying up to date with the evolving CASLI Generalist exams’ productions. It is critical for our students, novice interpreters, and interpreting mentors to have a strong grasp on the exam process. Participants will have the opportunity to gain a basic understanding of the exams' structures, updates, eligibility, and process for registration. The focus will be on the CASLI knowledge exam, the "Gap Test," and the performance exam for Deaf and hearing interpreter candidates.
