Community interpreting is a growing profession. It encompasses interpreting in health care, education and human and social services. In the past, family and friends used to interpret in these settings. Today, federal civil rights legislation, national interpreting ethics and standards, hospital accreditation agencies and many state and municipal laws endorse or promote the use of qualified or certified interpreters. A qualified interpreter should, at a minimum, attend professional training and be tested for language proficiency. A certified interpreter would also need to pass a recognized government or professional certification test. A 40-hour training course is considered by many the minimum threshold for community interpreting. The Community Interpreter meets this need.

Audience

Bilingual staff and contract interpreters in healthcare, worker compensation, education, social services and community services e.g., hospitals and health departments, K-12 schools, family planning, domestic violence, housing, senior centers, law enforcement, etc.

The program concludes with a two-hour written assessment on the last day of training. It offers three levels of certificates for successful candidates:

Level 1: Qualified Interpreter

Level 2: Professionally Trained Interpreter

Level 3: Hospitality Interpreter

In 2009, I started my journey to create an interpreters training that would serve interpreters that work across several specializations... I did it! I created it! ITPI (Interactive Training for Professional Interpreters) was born and we ran three sessions. But I was not satisfied I was in search of a way to either validate ITPI through an accredited testing process, or to become part of a program that would fulfill my thirst for training. I had a dream… that interpreters be a recognized profession valued and respected as any other professional we give our voice to!!! And in 2010, that dream became my inspiration to a business legacy.
