Online Medical Interpreter School & 3 Classes That Enhance Training
Online medical interpreter school provides the training that prepares bilingual adults for a successful career as a medical interpreter. Although it is technically possible to stop all training after completing a 40hr medical interpreter training course and begin working as a freelance medical interpreter; alumni can find more trouble finding that work than they might realize. To become a medical interpreter, enrolling in an online medical interpreter training course is absolutely essential... but also, unfortunately, the bare minimum prerequisite.
Becoming a medical interpreter is traditionally a longer process for those who want to work for a hospital or interpreter agency. Firstly, because these are private institutions that have to uphold a high standard to ensure official interpreters are qualified. Secondly, because a medical interpreter has an important job, and much like actual doctors- interpreters cannot just meet the bare minimum qualifications. Imagine if you went to a hospital to remove a tumor and you found out your surgeon only completed undergraduate studies, didn't start surgical residency, and doesn't hold a valid medical license. Any logical person would be expected to politely leave and find someone more qualified for the procedure.
Just as doctors are required to prove they still understand basic medicine by renewing their medical license, certified medical interpreters must also renew their license to work at a hospital or official agency.
Here's 3 classes to consider after completing online medical interpreter school:
For those looking to become a certified medical interpreter, advanced medical interpreting is a logical next step. Once completing our 60hr medical interpreter course -that EXCEEDS minimum requirements ✅ to sign up for your state's medical interpreter license exam (which only requires 40hrs of classroom prep)- students can enroll in this accelerated, advanced medical interpreting course that prepares them for the national medical interpreter licensing exam.
2️⃣ Remote interpreting training: VRI and OPI
In the age of adapting to life with COVID-19, more services are moving to remote platforms. Our remote interpreting course covers two most common forms: Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) and Over the Phone Interpreting (OPI). For the medical translators of today, being confident with these platforms isn't optional anymore- it's required. Every single online interpreting training class is conducted via LIVE webinar conferencing platform✅ that sets us apart from the competition.
You might be thinking: if I already completed medical interpreter school, why would I take Intro to Interpreting Training? This course is traditionally recommended for bilingual adults who don't know yet what their interpreting speciality will be (legal, community, immigration or medical). However, for those who have been working as a freelance interpreter without official certification, you would need to prove you have interpreting training if you want to become a certified interpreter and this course would meet those requirements.
