  • 750 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, Room 204

Expand your interpreting skills and work opportunities by enhancing your memory aids using the FAST Method, a note-taking technique created by CCCS, Inc.™ This unique tool differs from traditional shorthand by combining the use of symbols, healthcare acronyms and abbreviations. This interactive session provides interpreters with clear steps on how to develop a personal note-taking style in order to maximize your memory capacity by practicing through guided exercises. Use of this advanced skill will facilitate the flow and accuracy of the interpreting session.

Andrew Jerger, our speaker, is an experienced interpreter and teacher.
