These study guides do not provide instruction; the purpose is to familiarize you with the general format, content and evaluation criteria used in the tests. We intend the certification process to test only your interpreting proficiency.

The study guide is not intended to substitute for techniques to enhance interpreting proficiency, such as academic preparation or years of professional or practical experience. As with any other proficiency or criterion-referenced examination, one cannot open a book or follow a set of procedures to achieve the standard of performance necessary.
