Core Medical Interpreter Training®

Health Care Interpreter Renewal Requirements

Oregon Health Authority | Equity & Inclusion approved 64-Hour Core Medical Interpreter Training®

CMIT® is a flexible 60 to 100-hour training program that surpasses the recommended national training standards and requirements for national certification for medical/healthcare Interpreters. Although the CMIT® program is primarily intended for spoken languages, it provides American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters a specialization training.

CMIT® has been fully developed by and for interpreters. With more than 35 years of collective experience in the field of interpreting and interpreting training, the CMIT® authors put emphasis on the development of basic interpreting skills and learning of specialized medical terminology.

The CMIT®️ textbook helps students learn a wide variety of skills, techniques, and strategies to handle basic and difficult scenarios in different healthcare settings.

The CMIT®️ Workbook for Medical Interpreters provides a simple way of learning medical terminology and exposes students to the daily nuances of English and healthcare basic & technical languages that may present difficulties when interpreting in specialized settings.

This program is offered to bilingual or multilingual individuals, who are either currently working in health care or are interested in obtaining an entry-level credential in the field. The training covers all basic aspects of interpreting in healthcare, including the roles, modes, ethics, and current professional and regulatory guidelines.

CMIT® is offered via remote instruction using online instruction methodologies. Our NICHC eLearning site hosts the CMIT® lessons and advanced medical interpreter workshops.
