What is the CCHI EtoE Exam and the
CoreCHI-Performance™ Certification?

In a few words, the English-to-English (EtoE) exam is an oral exam that interpreters of all languages can take to earn the new CoreCHI-Performance™ Certification offered by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI).

The special characteristic about this oral exam is that it is all in English. This is not a bilingual interpreting exam; you will not be required to interpret or translate. If you’d like to obtain the CoreCHI-P™ certification, you need to pass the EtoE exam.
