Instruction will be primarily directed at developing the skills needed to interpret effectively in the healthcare environment.

All class periods will have a practicum component. Interpretation, memory, listening, and note-taking techniques will be presented, discussed, and practiced.

These classes meet the training requirements from both The Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters and The National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters.

After successful completion of the four levels, students will be eligible to take the national certification exam for either or both certifying organizations.

Levels II and III are language specific (must be bilingual in Spanish AND English, written and spoken).
