This 3-hour presentation, aimed at medical interpreters of all language pairs, is a side-by-side comparative analysis of the national medical interpreter certification processes administered by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI) and the National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters.  It aims to give interpreters wishing to get certified all the information they need to make the best decision on which test to take.

Both processes assess medical interpreter skills and knowledge, but they go about it in different ways. Join us to find out which one is best for you.
