Interpreting Certificate Programs at Community Colleges
We are seeing an emergent national trend of community colleges offering healthcare interpreting courses and certificate programs. They are tasked with preparing new generations of interpreters for entering the field. Such programs generate new talent who are ready to take a national professional certification exam upon graduation. As in other professions, while a college certificate is a starting point, a national certification is the seal of approval that allows an interpreter to practice independently and competently.
