CHI Performance Exam Test Dates

The Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI) offers its CHI performance exam during select time “windows” throughout the year. The next window will be from July 21st to August 9th. After August 9th, the exam won’t be available until October 20th through November 8th, which makes now a great time to enroll in IEO’s 12-Week CCHI Preparatory Course. The course not only familiarizes you with healthcare interpreter ethics and the relevant medical terminology, it also allows you to practice interpreting in all three modes and meets the required 40 hours of training for the exam.

Students have access to the course for 12 weeks, however this does not mean that it cannot be completed in time for the exam. Completion time depends entirely on how many hours per week that you spend studying. You can find out more about the course by clicking here.

You can also see in what cities the exam is available by clicking here.

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to schedule a Skype tour of the course!

June is Vietnamese Language Month!

With roughly 1.4 million speakers, did you know that Vietnamese is the sixth most spoken language in the U.S.? The largest Vietnamese populations are located in California, Washington, Texas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska. As such, Vietnamese interpreters are commonly needed in legal and medical settings. Vietnamese is also one of the languages available for certification by NBCMI.

To commemorate this language, IEO is happy to announce that June is Vietnamese Language Month! Receive 10% off any Vietnamese course, test, or Skype lesson!
