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.


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
