How will I learn?
Your training will include 50 hours of in-class instruction and practice and 50 hours of evaluated after-class practice. You’ll be assigned after-class skill-building exercises or simulated SI tasks after each face-to-face session. Your recorded assignments will then be submitted online and closely monitored by the instructor, who will offer feedback in the following in-class session. You’ll also be required to practise on your own outside of class through SFU’s online learning management system (Canvas) for at least 150 hours.
How will I be evaluated?
Evaluation is ongoing throughout the program. You will be evaluated according to university standards on a combination of assignments, quizzes, in-class and online performance and participation, and examinations. The final exam will be in the style of the CTTIC (Canadian Translators, Terminologists and Interpreters Council) certification exam. You must obtain a minimum of 70 per cent on the final grade and miss no more than 10 per cent of classroom instruction time to successfully complete this course.
