CCHI is looking for certified interpreters to volunteer for the CHI-Arabic test development

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

The work will take place in August-November 2023 via Zoom (see details below). Please fill out the application linked below and submit it by August 14, 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, certified CHI™-Arabic interpreters, who represent healthcare interpreters in the U.S. in a comprehensive manner. We are looking for volunteers – practicing interpreters who have the CHI™-Arabic certification (this requirement is mandatory) – who:

  • represent different regional varieties of Arabic
  • 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 solutions@cchicertification.org and tell us that you are interested in this prject. 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 8 two-hour meetings and several hours of independent work

1. Be able to complete a self-paced online orientation module between Aug 25 – Sep 8, which would require approximately 2-4 hours of time.

2. Be available for the 8 (eight) Zoom video conference meetings, of 2-hour duration each, on Saturday mornings (10:30 am – 12:30 pm ET) on these dates:

September 9, 16, 23, 30
October 7, 14
November 4, 11

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.
