What are medical interpreter certification requirements?

The requirements for medical interpreter certification are different for every state. In many states, you can receive a certification as soon as you complete your medical interpreter course. The course acts as a training environment, and it provides you with certification as well. In other states, you have to take a separate exam that is administered after you have taken a medical interpreter class. You can get a national certification from the National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters. This is a standardized certification that is becoming more common in all aspects of the medical interpreting industry.
