Description

Join a field of passionate, committed professionals working in medical, legal, and school settings: Become a community interpreter! The Community Interpreter® International is a comprehensive 40-hour certificate training program. It provides the prerequisite for national medical interpreting certification. The Community Interpreter® International is an interactive, skills-based program. It’s never boring. It is also the most up-to-date program in the field and comes from nationally-recognized Cross Cultural Communications. The training sessions ground you in what you need to know to work as a professional interpreter. With a broader reach than Bridging the Gap, the focus in TCI is on medical, school and government or nonprofit service settings. With this program, you receive a copy of the most comprehensive textbook and workbook in the field. Content includes:

-Ethics and Standards of Practice

-Interpreting Protocols and Skills

-Professional Identity & Role of the Interpreter

-Medical Terminology

-Practical interpreting exercises

The Community Interpreter® International Pre-enrollment Requirements:

The Community Interpreter® International Registration Enrollment Procedure:
