Medical Interpreter Certificate Program
“Each instructor is experienced in the field; they cover and present a common sense approach that can be used in a real world environment. They go beyond just reading the material. The interaction with the class assured the instructor that we understood what was taught and all questions and concerns were answered.
The Medical Interpreters course was challenging, educational, engaging and fun. The interaction between the instructors and the class is what makes this course different than just reading a book or attending an online seminar.”
Victor Toledo, Rhode Island, Graduate February 2011 class.
“When I decided to become a medical interpreter I spent hours and hours researching training programs on the internet. In Oregon where I live, I found on-line programs only and, to learn a huge body of medical information and the interpreting professional requirements and practical skills I would need, I wanted the structure and hands-on training of a live class. Interpreters Associates offered a 5 week, 45-hour intensive program taught by working Medical Interpreters with the highest available levels of national certification. They helped me line everything up over the phone, including housing, and I flew all the way across the country. It was worth it. The pace was intense – it had to be to properly cover all the material required of an IMIA-approved Certificate Program in only 5 weeks – but the teachers were qualified and both encouraging and demanding and I ended up passing with flying colors all the course requirements, culminating in a written exam that was designed to prepare me for the written National Certification Exam, as well as an oral exam of medical consultation interpreting role-plays. I want to thank my instructors, Art, Randy and Nestor as well as Ana and the rest of the Interpreters Associates staff. I definitely got what I came for!”
