Educational Opportunities for Healthcare Interpreters

We support education for healthcare interpreters

Healthcare interpreters are continually learning and improving their skills and performance. They learn the fundamental skills and knowledge of medical interpreting in all healthcare settings in introductory-level, prerequisite training programs. They continue their professional development with continuing education training programs, workshops, and webinars. CCHI is committed to ensuring interpreters have access to quality training opportunities that are affordable. CCHI often invites best national trainers to present at its free webinars.
