Preparatory Course for the Court Certification Exam: 4 weeks
Basic 3-Unit Course: 2 weeks
Single Topic Unit: 1 week
12 week Preparatory Course for the CCHI/NBCMI Exam: 2 weeks
24 week Healthcare Interpreter Training Program: 4 weeks

If the student wishes to continue with their course after they used their free extension, they may purchase additional access to the course at the rate of 25% of the prorated tuition. The student will then be granted an additional month of access to their course.

It’s not easy to find the right option, especially if you’re preparing for a complex certification exam and need to select the best possible training out there. As practicing interpreters, we know exactly how hard it is to allocate time for classroom training, which requires commute. But apart from the obvious perks of online education, there’s a more scientific proof of online training benefits, too.

According to the 93-page research report from the U.S. Department of Education, students in online training perform better than those receiving onsite instructions. For 12 years researchers studied online and classroom performance for the same continuing education courses, for topics ranging from healthcare to the military. On average, online students would rank in the 59th percentile in tested performance, with classroom students scoring in the 50th percentile. That’s a significant difference for a court or medical interpreter certification test.
