The written exam is not a pre-requisite to take the performance. The state of California does not require the written test, only that interpreters score a 4.0 or better on the performance. Due to this, we do not offer the written test at our location.
The wall color of the testing room is a slate blue background (Pictured above). Dress accordingly based on your skin color. We recommend comfortable shoes as you will be standing for approximately 50 min.
Availability is posted per quarter and is updated approximately two weeks prior. For example, Q4 will be posted mid September but you may only see until the end of August, which is Q3. Days of the week that are offered alternate between quarters to allow for more flexibility.
The EIPA has no age requirement or restriction; anyone can take it!
