If you are a graduate of an Interpreter Training Program or a certified interpreter with current credentials and would like to specialize in a specific area, we offer an advanced skills certificate in healthcare interpreting. 

There is a shortage of sign language interpreters, especially in the healthcare industry locally, state-wide and nationally. Job prospects are abundant and this is an excellent opportunity for you to learn a unique skill and contribute to your community.
