Our courses are designed to prepare those seeking certification in healthcare interpreting and hospital and clinical staff who want to understand the basics in this field. These workshops are meant to increase a healthcare interpreter’s competency by building the skills and vocabulary needed in real-life settings.

When accreditation is obtained, students will be notified and given credit for approved workshops. Register early for registration discounts. Capacity is limited.
