RFP Deadlines

Court interpretation for limited English proficient persons is a specialized and highly demanding form of interpreting. It requires skills that few bilingual individuals, including language instructors, possess. Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 42 states in Section 5, to receive designation as a state registered court interpreter, the candidate shall attend an approved ethics and skill building workshop.

The AOC has grant funds available from the Office of Criminal Justice Programs for the development of Ethics & Skills Building Workshop manuals to be used by the Court Interpreter Credentialing Program. This project’s objective is to develop, with significant input from the Administrative Office of the Court’s Court Interpreter Credentialing Program staff, standardized manuals to be used by workshop instructors and students. The grant period is July 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018.
