Welcome Interpreters!

Medical interpreters do very important work, and it is an honor to serve as your preferred certifying entity.  Once a candidate passes the credentialing exams from The National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters (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

In our quest to make certification ever more accessible, we now offer online proctoring, which enables both the written and oral exams to be taken from any location, including the convenience of your own home. Learn more under Get Started.

 Accredited by the NCCA

The National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) is the accreditation body of Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE). The NCCA sets the rigorous standards that must be met by organizations offering certification programs.
