"Use a picture. It is worth 1000 words." - Tess Flanders, circa 1911

The old saying goes: “A picture is worth 1000 words.”

In this case, 45 pictures are worth 1,431 words.

Whether you are a hearing sign language interpreter studying for national testing, or a Deaf interpreter preparing for the Certified Deaf Interpreter exam, or simply a working interpreter who would like a firmer grasp of RID’s Code of Professional Conduct, this book will benefit you.

Many interpreters are visual learners, but unfortunately, most of the resources for training interpreters are not written with visual learners in mind. Finally, The CPC Visually offers study materials accessible to both hearing and Deaf users, providing a way to internalize the standards in a pictorial way.

This workbook format will walk you through each tenet and sub-tenet, allowing you to work alone or with a mentor, memorizing each piece of the CPC as you progress through the book. So grab your pencil and let’s get started!
