Teacher training is an effective way to improve interpreting teachers' professional development and teaching quality. This paper reviews the major contents of EMCI (European Masters in Conference Interpreting) Training of Trainers Workshops (2012-2022) from the aspects of course progression, instructional organization, self-study, resource development, technological application, and teaching assessment. It crystalizes five characteristics of the workshops, namely diversified perspectives in topic selection, collaborative participation, interactive organization, systematic seminar content, and professional orientation. The paper further provides implications of the workshops for interpreting teacher education and interpreting teaching in China in terms of training themes, technological literacy, research competence, teaching feedback, processing of speech materials, and coordination of professional and pedagogical factors.
