Interpreter Education Online (IEO) was awarded Corp! Magazine’s prestigious 2015 DiSciTech Award in the Digital category for its innovative online interpreter training model.
IEO is the first interpreter trainer to receive the award.
The DiSciTech awards are presented to Michigan companies and educational organizations that are leading the way in science, technology and digital initiatives through innovation, research and applied science. IEO’s use of technology allows it to reach students from across the globe. “Our online courses allow anyone with an Internet connection to take part in our training. Furthermore, Skype allows us to administer testing in real time to anyone in the world,” said President Jinny Bromberg.
This award is a testament to IEO’s dedication to offering quality interpreter training and testing in a variety of languages to a broad demographic.
Since its inception, IEO has been committed to equipping interpreters with the tools necessary for quality language service. Today, IEO is proud to not only work with individual students, but also collaborate with state courts and healthcare organizations to provide quality training and testing to interpreters. IEO also works with Language Service Companies by testing their new applicants and helping companies maintain quality assurance for their clients. As IEO continues to grow, it is determined to ensure that the standards of professional interpretation are consistently upheld by its students.
