About this Event

Description

This 7–hour intensive online review course prepares current healthcare interpreters for both of the national certification written exams (CCHI and NBCMI) via reading materials and images and quizzes. Questions cover the following areas: prepare and manage an interpreting encounter, medical terminology and body systems, standards of practice & code of ethics and cultural competency. Both of the certification bodies, The National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters, which confers the CMI (Certified Medical Interpreter) and Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters, which awards the CHI (Certified Healthcare Interpreter), include questions in these four areas in their written exam.

Objectives

Practice and master what you need to know about healthcare/medical interpretation to feel confident in preparation for certification at the national level.

The course is set in a series of modules. Each module contains several lessons that cover all aspects of the written text. Questions contain explanatory text which are also illustrated with pictures of situations you may find during an interpreting session.
