The main goal of this 40- hour training program for medical interpreters is to develop your skills and competency not just to take a certification exam, but also to achieve the necessary level of knowledge to effectively perform the duties of a medical interpreter in the real world.
This program focuses on the practice and application of knowledge through realistic simulated medical encounters. You will have the opportunity to rehearse and discover new vocabulary by interpreting medical documents, narrations and doctor-patient conversations as if you were in an actual medical encounter. You’ll also find suggested model renditions of each exercise so you can analyze your answers and self-assess your performances.
The educational objectives of this program are derived from the guidelines and requirements outlined by the major medical interpreting organizations and certifying entities, especially the National Standards for Healthcare Interpreting Programs issued by the National Council on Interpreting in Health Care (NCIHC).
The perfect blend of more than 500 multiple-choice and single-answer questions with the practice of challenging simulated medical encounters will help you be prepared for the written and oral certification exam.
Upon completion of this program you’ll feel confident and pleased to know that you not only have reached your learning goals, but also advanced beyond an entry level!
All you need is a computer with Internet connection, a functioning printer, a recording device (smartphone or tablet) and a set of headphones.
