The Spanish Medical Interpreter Certificate may be completed in three quarters of full time study. Depending upon placement testing and bilingual language screening results students may need to complete additional prerequisite coursework in English, Spanish or computer skills in order to obtain the minimum level of communication skills and computer proficiency in both languages.
Students must have their high school diploma or GED® before entering the program.
All Spanish Medical Interpreter program applicants must complete a two-part written and oral Spanish language assessment test in addition to submitting an application for the Spanish Medical Interpreter program. Please contact the Allied Health department at 527-4589 to schedule an appointment to take this test.
