Program Information & Resources

Questions about the Court Interpreter Program & Certification?

Practice Examination Kits are available from the Consortium for State Court Interpreter Certification. The Kits are designed to provide examination candidates with a step-by-step process to increase their understanding of four basic things: what a real Consortium performance examination looks like, the scoring methodology used by the Consortium to score oral examinations, what a passing performance is really like, and self-assessment of one's own level of skill and readiness to take a Consortium exam. 

The following kits and other reference and study guides can be found at the National Center for State Courts interpreter resources site:

  • Practice Exam Kit - Spanish

  • Practice Exam Kit - Spanish Dictionaries

  • Practice Exam Kit - All English

  • Practice Exam Kit - English Dictionaries
