Welcome to the Fundamental Non-Language-Specific Training Program!
The Fundamental Training for Medical Interpreters program has been designed for those willing to pursue a career in medical interpreting, as well as for hospital and clinical staff who need to learn the essentials of healthcare interpreting. This language-neutral program was created in order to provide high-quality training to interpreters whose working language is other than Spanish.
The main goal of this program is to provide you with the foundational skills and knowledge a medical interpreter needs to possess in order to effectively bridge the linguistic and cultural barriers between patient and provider.
This program will not only help you fulfill the 40-hour training prerequisite to take the certification exam, but it will also help you achieve the competency and skill needed in real life assignments. This program satisfies the minimum 40 hours of training required by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI) and the National Board for Certified Interpreters (NBCMI).
Throughout this program, you’ll have the opportunity to rehearse and discover new vocabulary by interpreting challenging medical documents, narrations, and doctor-patient conversations as if you were in an actual medical interpreting assignment. In addition, you’ll answer more than 500 questions and practice with many hours of interpreting exercises in a computer software system that resembles the certification test formats. The perfect combination to help you prepare for both, the written and oral exams!
This 40-hour training course is composed of 10 core classes; each class is about 4-hours long. The beauty of it is that you don’t have to take them all at once or schedule them. They are on demand—at your own pace and convenience. You’ll have immediate access to the course after your enrollment and will be able to enjoy it for one whole year. Our material is fun, original and up to date. No extra fees or material to buy!
