Court interpreters being recruited
Court interpreters are being recruited, and a once-a-year informational session and registration opportunity will be hosted 6 p.m. Thursday in Campus Center Room 306 on the University of Hawaii at Hilo campus.
The event is free and open to the public.
The Hawaii State Judiciary Office on Equality and Access to the Courts will present information about its Court Interpreter Certification program. Court interpreters are independent contractors and earn $25-$55 per hour for a minimum of two hours a day.
Thursday’s session offers an opportunity for individuals who speak English and a second language to take the first step toward becoming an interpreter.
All individuals must meet mandatory minimum requirements to become qualified as a state court interpreter, which include: submission of a Court Interpreter Certification Program Application Form (available online at www.courts.state.hi.us/courtinterpreting), attending a two-day basic orientation workshop offered statewide in February and March, passing written English and basic ethics exams and clearing a criminal background check.
For more information, contact the Office on Equality and Access to the Courts at (808) 539-4860, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.courts.state.hi.us/services/court_interpreting/court_interpreting.html.
