ASL Study Group classes are cancelled tonight
Sorry so last minute. I have had several people call or send messages asking if we are cancelling tonight. I have looked at the weather and it seems it will not begin to get severe until later during the middle of the night. The big concern of most of you is this is your last chance to prepare before severe weather hits. Please take time off tonight and get prepared. Make sure your pipes are wrapped, prepare a place for your outside pets, put antifreeze in your car, and do last minute shopping.
Keep warm and we will see eachother next week!!!

Preparing for the Test
The EIPA Written Test is based on a set of knowledge standards that was developed by a group of experts, including deaf consumers, interpreters, interpreter trainers, deaf educators, and ASL linguistics.
The test is not a factual memory test. In other words, memorization of the knowledge standards only, may not enable you to receive a passing score. Application of knowledge to situations is necessary in order to pass this examination.
The test is also based on the EIPA Code of Professional Conduct for Educational Interpreters. The RID Code of Ethics is not the basis for professional conduct in the EIPA Written Test.
The written test will be given in 2013 during the months of February, March, May, June, September, October and November 1st – 15th, 2013.
