Interpreter Training Program

Interpreter Training Program

Students have the option of committing to the two-year program alone, or the two-year program along with the interpreter training program. Students are eligible to join the interpreter program after the following:

  • Having completed the registration process
  • Passed the entrance exam or achieved 70% in the final LRZTP 8 exam
  • Have the recommendation of the LRZTP director

For student who did not enroll in the two-year program, joining the interpreter program will be done based on available seats and the following:

  • Completing the registration process
  • Passing the entrance exam

Those students who graduate the interpreter program will be ‘trainee interpreters’ who qualify to complete a two year interpreter apprenticeship in an FPMT Dharma Center. LRZTP will assist FPMT affiliated students to find a center to work at the end of their training.

It’s important to note that the availability of FPMT Center positions varies from year to year.  Those students who wish to work at a FPMT center will attend the LRZTP program as FPMT affiliated students.

Those who do not wish to to work at an FPMT Center will be known as freelance students.

Both FPMT affiliated students and freelance students are required to abide by the ethical policy of FPMT, keeping the five precepts  and any student who engages in the practice of Shugden is not permitted to attend LRZTP.

Interpreter training date:

The interpreter program will be run directly after LRZTP 8.  The specific date will be confirmed soon.
