3 Signs Our Medical Interpreter Training Program Is Right for You
Our online medical interpreter training program is designed with you in mind. This 60-hour, 7-week training course was developed to enable participants to become competent medical interpreters. Taught by live instructors, our highly engaging and interactive webinars are easy to access wherever you are in the world. Crafted by qualified and respected professionals in the field, our course is divided into 3 parts: Medical Interpreter Core Competency (covering basic concepts and strategies delivered in English), Anatomy and Physiology (delivered in English) and Language Coaching (including language practice and role-plays in the target language). If you have reliable internet connection, here are 3 signs this course may be for you:
1. You Can Demonstrate Language Skills Before Enrolling In Our Medical Interpreter Training Program
One of the pre-requisites for our online medical interpreter training program is that all participants pass an Oral Language Assessment Pre-Test. After registration, a language coach will contact you to set up a 15 minute language assessment; conducted via phone 2 weeks before class. By demonstrating your fluency and literacy skills in both English and the target language, you will ensure success in the course and beyond. With pre-existing language skills in more than one fluency, we will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to be successful and take the National Board Exam if you choose to do so.
2. You Are Looking for a New Career As A Medical Interpreter
We have all been in a transitory state since the start of 2020. As the Coronavirus surges on, everything is being conducted remotely- and with that brings new opportunities. Between March and July 2020, 7.7 million workers lost their jobs due to Covid. As of November 2021, 4.5 million additional people have quit their jobs. With the workforce in such a state as this, there has never been a better time to change careers; and what could be better than one that provides ample opportunity to work remotely? While starting rates for medical interpreters are between $20-40 per hour, location can also affect starting rates so be sure to check local job listings for a more accurate expectation.
