CCHI is looking for certified interpreters to volunteer for the CoreCHI test development

We are calling for volunteers (CCHI-certified interpreters) to participate in the CoreCHI™ test development in November-December 2023.

The work will take place in November-December 2023 via Zoom (see details below). Please fill out the application linked below and submit it by September 25, 2023.

CCHI will provide all the necessary orientation and training via online collaboration tools. All tasks will also be performed remotely via video conference calls and other online applications. Please read about the commitment below so that you understand the scope of work.

Who should apply?

Our goal is to convene a diverse panel of SMEs, CCHI-certified interpreters, who represent healthcare interpreters in the U.S. in a comprehensive manner. We are looking for volunteers – practicing interpreters who have the CoreCHI™, CoreCHI-Performance™, or CHI™ certification (this requirement is mandatory) – who:

  • represent different languages or regional varieties of their Language Other Than English (LOTE)
  • may also be managers (with previous practicing interpreter experience)
  • are not trainers of introductory interpreter courses (but may be trainers of continuing education courses)

If you already submitted an SME application in 2022-23, please email us at and tell us that you are interested in this project. We may waive the requirement to submit an application again.


What are your commitments (if selected)?

  • Sign CCHI’s Confidentiality and Content Security Agreements (Review our SME Participation Policies prior to applying.)
  • Live participation in 6 two-hour meetings and several hours of independent work

1. Be able to complete a self-paced online orientation module between Oct 17 – 30, which would require approximately 4 hours of time.

2. Be available for the 6 (six) Zoom video conference meetings, of 2-hour duration each, on Wednesday evenings (8 – 10 pm ET) on these dates:

November 1, 8, 15, 29
December 6, 13

3. Be available for independent remote assignments between the meetings.

Please apply only if you are available on the specified days.

This is a volunteer project. CCHI will not pay any honorarium for participation in this project. However, CCHI will grant 6 PB (performance-based) CE instructional and 2 CE non-instructional hours for participation, and issue a voucher of $150 value that can be applied towards the certification renewal fee.
