Online Focus is a subscription service for interpreter professional development. Since 2008, Online Focus has served hundreds of interpreters around the country with convenient, effective, and affordable educational solutions. Enjoy Online Focus at home, at work, or wherever you have access to a computer with high-speed Internet.
All of our programs consist of streaming videos of D/deaf signing models to view and analyze with the help of corresponding "Guide Sheets", or homework, in PDF format.
Simply browse titles in our online store, subscribe to your desired programs, and add CEUs if you wish. Your subscription will become immediately active and we'll send you your username and password, plus a quick-start guide.
You may log in to view your training materials as often as you like during your subscription period, anytime 24/7. Keep in mind, there is an expiration date to your subscription, so you'll want to plan accordingly. Those who purchase the optional CEUs then mail or email their completed Guide Sheets to Interpretek.
