AIIC DC Training
The fist workshop was attended by twelve interpreter trainers in the Middlebury DC Office, while another seven participated remotely. 

Over three full days (Oct. 5-7, 2018), the Middlebury Office in Washington DC hosted two 1.5-day seminars for interpreter trainers led by Dr. Franz Pochhacker MACI'88 from the University of Vienna.

Over three full days, October 5-7, the Middlebury Office in Washington DC hosted two 1.5-day seminars led by Dr. Franz Pochhacker MACI '88 from the University of Vienna. The seminars were titled "Interpreting: What We Know and How We Know It." The Middlebury Institute provided the venue and the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC) Training Committee was responsible for the content.

I'm grateful to GSTILE and the DC Office for supporting this initiative. It has helped raise our profile as a school and been a great opportunity for professional growth for the MIIS professors who were able to attend. 
— Professor Barry Olsen MACI '99

The first workshop was attended by twelve interpreter trainers on site, while another seven participated remotely from three different continents. The second workshop was attended by ten trainers. In all, six interpreter trainers from the Institute participated in these training sessions.
