Re:                   Educational Interpreter Performance Assessment (EIPA)


Attention all Interpreters:

The EIPA will be held in Great Falls, Montana, at the Montana School for the Deaf and Blind (MSDB). The performance assessment will occur September 23-24, 2017. If you would like to register for the performance assessment, you will need to e-mail Danni McCarthy (dmccarthy@mt.gov ) no later than August 23, 2017, as the registration closes 30 days before the testing date.
