One of the top priorities for CCHI is listening carefully to the voices in the healthcare interpreting field, the voices of various stakeholders.
Community of certified interpreters is growing fast. The Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI) now counts over 1,280 certified interpreters - CoreCHI™ and CHI™ credential holders. And even more interpreters have started their certification journey and are preparing to take their exams. More and more language companies support medical interpreter certification. They require or prefer certification as a prerequisite for hire and reimburse interpreters for the certification expenses. At the same time there are plenty of challenges to the national certification.
CCHI Commissioners are eager to understand the reality of the interpreter services market, your perceptions of certification, your opinions about the barriers, and your suggestions on how to overcome them.
