Classes will take place twice weekly, for three hours per session, and this course will be supplemented with 15 hours of field experience in a variety of medical settings to prepare the student for the demands of the diversified work environments they may encounter in the workforce.. This language-neutral course, taught in English, is open to speakers of all languages. Prior experience in the medical and/or interpreting fields is helpful, but not required, this is an entry-level certification.
