Some examples of training regularly offered for interpreters include:

Navigating the Ethical Minefield (3.5 hours)

This workshop addresses questions such as: What is the difference between a moral decision and an ethical one? Participants will have a clear understanding of the process of ethical decision making rather than simply being encouraged to follow a list of rules.

The Interpreting Process (6 hours)

This workshop has a threefold purpose: a brief introduction to the history of interpreting and interpreter vocabulary, an introduction to models of interpretation and their impact on decision making, and the Cokely Process Model that is used as a tool to help interpreters make rapid improvement in work quality.
