Workshop/Course Description:

This 1 full day training is for interpreters aspiring to take the medical certification exam either with the CCHI or the NBCMI/IMIA. This training is for language neutral interpreters as the written part of the certification exam is in English. Participants will be provided with material to study prior to attending the class, so don’t delay reserving your spot today.

Professionalization and Certification are important for Medical and Healthcare Interpreters to achieve recognition, credibility and respect from the community they serve, other healthcare professionals, and society in general, which will lead to better working conditions, growth opportunities, and economic return. But without a doubt, the most important reason medical interpreters should pursue certification is to help ensure the well-being and safety of the patients.

In order to become a CMI or CHI, candidates will need to demonstrate mastery of fundamental medical interpreting concepts and skills via the written and oral certification exams. Prepping for the certification exams involves more than just memorizing concepts and terms; it requires practice, feedback as well as a change in the mindset of the candidate to navigate with ease and confidence the testing process and format.

During this workshop, participants will be provided with tips, strategies and lessons on the fundamental medical interpreting concepts and skills that are relevant to the exams. Likewise, interpreters will be guided through a series of practical exercises to help them identify strengths and weaknesses while performing sight translation and consecutive interpreting.

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.
