The Capstone Course begins with a brief review of the main interpreting competencies covered in the past five courses. Following a recap of the ethical principles and standards of practice, the skills of consecutive interpreting and note taking, sight translation and simultaneous interpreting are practiced in preparation for the course's major component - the integration of interpreter skills and competencies through the "Comprehensive Case Studies" method. The final module deals with professional comportment issues and some of the financial management skills required for the interpreter who works as an independent contractor.
