Medical/Healthcare Interpreting 101™: a 40-
hour training for certification
Workshop/Course Description: As the demand of medical/healthcare interpreters increases, so does that the need for linguists and bilingual professionals to place themselves competitively in the marketplace as they seek job opportunities as interpreters. The Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI) and the National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters provide a nationwide professional credential of competency to Certified Healthcare Interpreters (CHI™), Core Certified Healthcare Interpreters (CoreCHI™) and Certified Medical Interpreters (CMI™).
This 40-hour training is designed to prepare individuals who are interested in becoming certified interpreters in the healthcare/medical sector by covering all topics under the knowledge areas that are tested by both national certification written examinations, and it provides an opportunity to practice the modes of interpreting tested in the oral component.
Participants receive a Certificate of Completion upon obtaining a cumulative score of 70% or above for all quizzes. Participants with a cumulative score below 70% in quizzes will receive a Certificate of Attendance. Both types of Certificates can be used during the application process for either Certification organization to meet the minimum requirement of 40 hours of training in medical interpreting. Those who receive a Certificate of Attendance are particularly advised to additional self-study time and/or additional training before applying for the Written Examination for Certification.
