"The June 2020 BTG course was 100% on-line because of COVID-19. While not the same as attending in person, Carolina kept it interesting, interactive, and fun. Though we didn't meet until the last day of the course, it still felt like we had all been attending in person from the beginning. The BTG course gave me the needed tools to become a medical interpreter. I cannot wait to get my new career off the ground."
40-Hour and 64-hour Bridging the Gap Medical Interpreter Training Certificate classes from nationally licensed Cross Cultural Communications and Cross Cultural Health Care Program instructors in a warm, engaging environment. The courses focus on Medical Interpreting; including medical terminology, anatomy, and physiology. Legal Interpreting is discussed briefly.
The Community Interpreter® (TCI) course addresses working in community settings such as health and human services, schools and an introduction to the legal system.
Bridging the Gap or BTG medical interpreter training is the leading medical interpreter certificate program in the U.S. today. I took the 64-hour course and it is excellent! I’m sure the 40-hour course is as great. I am more inclined to recommend the 64-hour course because it is more robust and it includes Health Care disparities and goes deeper into ethics, cultural competency and disparity issues for all populations. This training facilitated by Carolina Weaver from One World Translation truly prepares you extremely well for medical interpretation roles. She also facilitated in a very empathic and thorough way all the essential components needed to pass the certification exam. All participants passed with a 90+ score. - Maria Matos, October 2020
