CMIT is a flexible 60 to 100-hour training program developed by the National Institute for Coordinated Healthcare [NICHC] 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 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 the 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 the English and healthcare basic and technical languages that may present difficulties when interpreting in specialized settings.
