The Community Interpreter® is the first and only national 40+ hour certificate program for community interpreting in the U.S.

This course covers ethics and conduct, basic skills (from pre-session to post-session), positioning, terminology, modes of interpreting, steps for sight translation, intervention strategies, cultural mediation, and other vital skills and protocols. It breaks professional skills into simple components and offers simple decision-making tools to help interpreters make on-the-spot judgment calls in daily practice. It tackles many of the most persistent challenges in the field and proposes practical, easy-to-implement strategies based on the highest professional standards. It also guides interpreters on how to develop problem-solving skills and use decision-making tools that they can apply almost anywhere through extensive use of role plays, activities and group exercises, as well as discussions based on video.

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

Participants are required to take language proficiency assessments prior starting class and will receive a language proficiency certificate. The language proficiency assessment fees are not included in the registration and results must be received to issue a final training certificate upon successful completion of the training written test.
