CCHI offers an independent, national, comprehensive certification program to medical interpreters of all languages since 2009. Our CoreCHI™ and CHI™-Spanish certifications are accredited by NCCA; these are the only accredited interpreter certifications in the U.S. CCHI is dedicated to supporting professional healthcare interpreters who value the power of education and certification.
The CMI credential is an entry-level certification for medical interpreters who meet industry-standard educational requirements, and pass a written and oral examination. These exams test adequate knowledge of the medical interpreting profession, including ethics, standards of practice, role boundaries and medical terminology, among other important competencies. The National Board currently offers the CMI (Certified Medical Interpreter) credential in six languages: Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Russian, Korean, and Vietnamese.
