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!
About the Author

Grayce, who is hearing, has been interpreting since 1989 and enjoys teaching a wide range of students from Deaf kids to budding interpreters in other countries. Eric, Deaf since birth, has completed several degrees and serves the Deaf community in numerous capacities, locally, statewide, and internationally. They have 5 children (3 grown and 2 school aged) and live near Nashville, TN.
The CPC Visually is great because the exercises utilize various senses, which reinforces the learning. It’s fun! I love the illustrations – very clear and easy to remember. This is a great tool for anyone preparing for the NIC, ITPs and for working interpreters, both hearing and Deaf.

I wish The CPC Visually had been available when I was studying for National Certification! This is an invaluable resource for spatial, linguistic and kinesthetic learners. The clear and concise images with descriptions easily allow the reader to internalize and understand the CPC. Well done!
