This 8 hour course is for any First Responder who wants to have the extra occupational skill of communicating with a Spanish speaking individual. The words and phrases taught will be simple enough to effectively communicate until an interpreter can be reached. This class will help give clearer instructions, allow for less conflicts and provide better emergency services and protection. Cultural competence will be addressed and students will participate in scenarios based on each occupation.
