Join NETA at their monthly meeting on November 18th, 2017 where Andrew Jerger will be teaching innovative note taking techniques for interpreting. Please see NETA’s original event post below for more details.
NOTE-TAKING FOR INTERPRETERS
Expand your interpreting skills and work opportunities by enhancing your memory aids using the FAST Method, a note-taking technique created by CCCS, Inc.™ This unique tool differs from traditional shorthand by combining the use of symbols, healthcare acronyms and abbreviations.
This interactive session provides interpreters with clear steps on how to develop a personal note-taking style in order to maximize your memory capacity by practicing through guided exercises. Use of this advanced skill will facilitate the flow and accuracy of the interpreting session.
This event is free and open to all interested parties. There’s no need to RSVP. To participate remotely, please email Lesley at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, November 16. A certificate of attendance will be provided upon request.
