Registration at the bottom of the page.
Hi everyone – It’s time to register! Please make sure you have June 3 – 8, 2019 on your calendar. Deadline to register is May 6th.
The Oklahoma Educational Interpreter Training Institute (OEITI) is being held at OSD June 3 – 7. This week long training is sponsored by OSD and the Oklahoma State Department of Education. This training is for interpreters who have not yet attained their QAST level IV or EIPA 4.
On Friday, June 7, workshops will be open to any interpreter of any level, followed by workshops on Saturday sponsored by OKRID! ALL interpreters, including those that are not members of OKRID may attend! OSD and OKRID are collaborating to bring community and educational interpreters together for 2 days of learning, interacting, and encouraging each other. Please click on the link below to register!
For participants attending OEITI, there is no cost. Training is provided to you by the Oklahoma State Department of Education. For interpreters attending only the OKRID sponsored workshops on Friday and/or Saturday, the cost is $30.00. You may send a check or money order to OSD after you register online. You will be able to stay in the dorms and have meals on campus both days. I am also checking with area hotels to reserve a block of rooms if anyone prefers that. I will get more information to you as soon as possible.
We are finalizing the agenda and hope to get that out to you within the week. Remember that if you wish to test for the EIPA, you must contact LeeAnn Lundgreen at LeeAnn.Lundgreen@usu.edu. If you wish to test for QAST on Monday, June 10th, please contact LV Berglund at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please pass this information along to others and let me know if you have any questions! You may email me email@example.com or call my office at (580)622-4930 or call/text to (405)620-0946. Thank you to Anne Byrd, Ben Davis, and Calista Choate for helping with this event!

Regarding the workshops sponsored by OKRID on June 7 and 8, OKRID members may attend the workshops for free on Friday and Saturday if they do not plan on eating on campus, staying on campus, or attending the social event Friday night. ($30 for 4 meals and a room plus a social event is a pretty good deal!) Just let us know!
