Welcome Interpreters!

Medical interpreters are a key component of the care team when assisting persons with limited English proficiency.  Since 2010, the National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters (National Board) has helped thousands of interpreters further their careers through its excellent credentialing program, by which professional medical interpreters demonstrate they have met nationally set standards to ensure patient safety and compliance with federal guidelines and requirements.  Once a candidate passes the certification exams from the National Board, they are bestowed the CMI Credential (Certified Medical Interpreter). 

The careful vetting process and high standards held by the National Board are just some of the reasons employers and care providers prefer working with CMIs--knowing they will be compliant with regulatory guidelines, provide complete and accurate interpretation, and promote patient safety.  

We currently offer the CMI credential in:

Spanish - Russian - Mandarin - Cantonese - Korean - Vietnamese
