What is a practicum student?
A practicum student is a college student who is pursuing a degree in sign language interpreting and is satisfying their degree requirements by accompanying a working professional for practical experience. Hired Hands will always get permission before allowing a student to join an interpreter on an assignment. Students do not make up an interpreting team and do not replace the need for an interpreter. You will never be charged for allowing a student to participate in your request. They are only there to learn.
