Fee: $30 includes lunch
Description:
The language differences in American Sign Language and spoken English require that instructors and interpreters employ various expansion and compression techniques to achieve message equivalency. Expansion techniques are used in order to make implicit information in the source language more explicit in the target language. If instructors/interpreters are unfamiliar with expansion techniques, the resulting work will demonstrate unnatural phrasing, incorrect grammatical structures, and errors in production. The goal of this workshop is to expose instructors/interpreters to various expansion techniques and apply (3-4) specific techniques as found in American Sign Language.

The one that is attractive to schools is using the “unlicensed” person to do repair work only. They can do repairs or replacement of existing equipment as long as they do it under a contractor’s license. There is no limit to the number of people who can take the required 2 hour training.

Please make sure that you fill out the Unlicensed Electrician Application on the Department of Labor & Industry website at this link https://secure.doli.state.mn.us/license/initialapp.aspx . You will need your license number when you take the class.
