Audience: Interpreter trainers, and aspiring trainers of interpreters, who have graduated from a 40-hour interpreting foundation program and wish to offer a national medical, social services and educational 40- to 60-hour interpreter training curriculum without licensing fees.

The Community Interpreter® International (TCII) is the only national 40-hour licensed certificate program for community interpreting. This 40-hour Training of Trainers (TOT) licenses trainers across the U.S. and worldwide to deliver that program. The Community Interpreter® International and its TOT constitute the most comprehensive, in-depth program anywhere in the U.S. for trainers who seek to train community interpreters working in a broad spectrum of public and private services. This dynamic, interactive TOT program emphasizes skills building, role plays, small group work, video vignettes, discussion and case studies. It is designed to train interpreters in medical, educational and social services.

Visit our sister website for full details and to register for this program.

All participants accepted into this TOT are required to complete The Community Interpreter® Online (TCIO) before the license is issued—and ideally before the first day of the TOT. The TCIO fee is included in participants’ TOT registration fee. (Exemptions granted for participants who have completed an onsite or live online version of The Community Interpreter® within the last three years. Training certificate must be submitted as proof.)

Participants will also be required to complete additional coursework (such as preparation for their group presentation) outside of the 40 hours of live online training.

All participants for this online TOT must have:

  • A desktop or laptop computer with a webcam. (The course may not be taken on a tablet, phone or other small device.) Participants must be visible on their webcam during class.
  • Reasonably stable, reliable high-speed internet.
  • A headset with microphone or good earbuds with microphone.

Feedback from our participants:

This training has been a dramatic learning curve for me but in a highly positive sense. The course was filled with so many AHA!! moments and eye-opening experiences that gave me deeper insights both into the profession of community interpreter and also equipped me with invaluable teaching strategies and tools.

I really valued the amount of expertise from the instructors as well as from my colleagues.
