Hello, I wanted to extend my appreciation for this course. It was very thorough and encompassed everything needed to know when interpreting in a worker's comp encounter. Although I have been interpreting in this field for over 8 years, it was good to know that someone has finally put into place something where we can learn about this type of encounter. Great job!

The webinar was informative. Only portion that we all had problems with was with the sound for the video and not having immediate access to the forms.

I have never had to interpret for a worker's comp case before. Though in general, I wasn't even sure how workers' comp even worked. The videos at the beginning of the lesson, regarding the history of worker's comp were most informative. They were a good foundation in being able to understand the rest of the lesson. I appreciate all the time and effort the instructor's put in to organizing this whole lesson. It was most helpful for my interpreting endeavors and for personal knowledge as well. Thank you again for the effort made in putting this lesson together.
