The need for medical and community interpreters is rapidly increasing, and so is the demand for trained professionals in the field. This 54-hour course, offered in collaboration with Transfluenci, will help prepare new and experienced interpreters to work in hospitals, health clinics, governmental agencies and more, following the standards and ethics of the profession. This program will include an overview of the profession and professional settings, sight translation, consecutive and simultaneous interpreting practice, role-playing, note-taking techniques, readings in the field, exercises for building memory and concentration, discussion of practices, standards and ethics, vocabulary in the medical and legal fields, and advice on how to find and keep a job as an interpreter. This course is open to all languages, but students must be able to comprehend and communicate fully in both English and at least one other language. Because a selective interview is required before acceptance, students must register at least two (2) weeks in advance. The College will issue a certificate upon satisfactory completion of this course, and participants receiving a certificate will be given the opportunity to interview with Transfluenci for potential employment as interpreters. This program meets requirements of the International Medical Interpreters Association (IMIA) for national certification. Prior to acceptance into the course, the student must take a brief language proficiency test.
