"I would like to start by saying thank you to you and the school for all of the help and training that you have provided. I completed your Court Interpreting Program last October. I was able to pass both the written and oral tests in my first attempt. I am now working as a certified court interpreter in the Fresno area. My decision to enroll at SCSI is the best investment I have made in my career!"
