Workshop Descriptions

Which OPI Workshop is Right for Me?

The OPI and MOPI workshops are very similar. Consider these factors when choosing the right workshop for you:

In order to be certified to conduct advisory OPIs from Novice Low through Superior, you must pursue Full Certification, which means you must both have a Superior personal OPI rating within the target language and complete an OPI Workshop.

If you do not need or wish to conduct advisory OPIs across the full range of proficiency levels, you can pursue Limited Certification. This certification allows you to conduct advisory OPIs from Novice Low through Intermediate High. In this case, 您可以完成MOPI工作坊而不是OPI工作坊,但必须在目标语言中拥有至少高级中等的个人OPI评级.

Requirements to Participate

As prerequisite to qualify to attend an OPI or MOPI workshop as well as apply for ACTFL OPI Tester Certification, registrants must be affiliated with (currently or previously) an academic institution as defined by ACTFL, have an undergraduate degree in a related field, and have a minimal proficiency level of Advanced Mid in the language of the workshop.

An academic institution is an accredited school, college, or university where foreign languages are taught. 术语“隶属于学术机构”是指参与指导或星际网赌登录语言学生的现任或前任教师和/或工作人员. 提供翻译服务或语言测试的私人语言公司不符合ACTFL对学术机构的定义. Private for-profit companies do not qualify.

OPI Tester Certification

After completing an OPI or MOPI workshop, participants will be eligible to pursue ACTFL OPI Tester Certification, if desired. Participants may apply for certification in any language regardless of the language of training.

Registrants intending to apply for Full OPI Tester Certification must participate in an OPI Assessment Workshop. 有意申请“有限营运资讯测试员”认证的注册人士,可参加营运资讯星际网赌登录或MOPI星际网赌登录工作坊.
