Certification:Benefits of Certification




The Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI) is proud to celebrate its 7th birthday today!  These past seven years were full of immense creativity and intense decision-making which led to major changes to the status of our profession making healthcare interpreters equal among other allied healthcare professions. 




In 7 years, we have grown to a community of over 2,500 certified interpreters nationwide! 


We wouldn’t have gotten here without you. It is YOU who inspired us! It was YOU who provided advice, support, and monetary contributions! You have helped create a national professional community of certified healthcare interpreters! 

The strength of our profession is in the numbers of certified professionals.  We call on interpreters of all languages to take the first step to becoming certified today!
