We're so psyched that you're interested in our newest interpreting intensive, Lab7: First Steps in Simultaneous for Community Settings. You'll find more details in the FAQs below, and here are the basics to get your started:
When: 3-Day Intensive | January 14-16, 2020 | 10am-5pm ET
Where: Live Online Instruction (Zoom & Slack)
Why's there an application? Why can't I just register?
That's a great question. As much as we don't like to say it, this simultaneous course is not for everyone. We want to make sure that all participants who want to join us can be successful in Lab7, and the only way to do that is to vet applications before the course begins.
We also need to make sure that everyone has a language partner, and the application process helps us with that. We'll accept applications until all spots fill, and then open a waiting list.
