INTERPRETER EDUCATORS NETWORK (IEN)
IEN membership is initiated with a Licensing Agreement between an organization or company and TIN wherein a member is given rights to TIN’s training expertise, training materials, and TIN branding, depending on the Membership Level chosen. This makes TIN unique because the IEN member is trained by TIN to be a trainer of interpreters and translators in multiple industries where language access is challenged - including education, mental health settings, community settings, and the medical community. IEN members receive exclusive access to five different curricula packages, as well as continuing education courses.
