LanguageLine Academy’s Medical Certification Test is a comprehensive assessment developed with over three decades of medical interpreting experience. No other organization has more experience supporting medical interpreters in reaching their professional goals. Our test experts and organization were utilized to develop the first national performance standard for medical interpreters. The test measures the interpreter’s skills and level of competence in their knowledge of medical terminology.
The test takes 45 minutes to one hour and is delivered over a landline phone. A team of the highest quality testers in the industry administer all LanguageLine Academy tests. Testers have a rich variety of qualifications, including M.A.s in Translation and Interpretation, and years of experience in medical interpreting. Members of the testing team have also earned external interpreter certification credentials.
A written report will be provided to the employer via email within one week. It includes:
A “Certificate of Competency in Medical Interpreting” will be issued by mail to candidates who successfully pass the test.
(First-time users will need to set up a free scheduling account.)
