Qualification Programs in Medical Interpretation and Translation

In order to obtain a qualification in Medical Interpretation and Translation in the state of Idaho, you must attend a 16-hour workshop and pass both an ethics exam and an oral exam.  As Idaho does not have a state-sponsored medical certification program, these must be pursued through independent agencies.  At the moment, we strongly recommend attending a workshop run by the Morales Dimmick Translation Service because they have a long-standing relationship providing these services to health care entities in Idaho and across the nation.  This service also offers training in cooperation with the State’s Court Interpreter Training Program Idaho Court Interpreter for those interested in becoming a State Court Interpreter.  For more information, and for schedules of upcoming retreats and trainings, please go to their website at www.MDtranslation.com .

Scheduled training sessions for Fall 2013:

August 16-21- Court Interpreter Training Retreat - Punta Cana Melia Caribe Tropical Resort

October 1-2 - Basic Training for Interpreters in Health Care - Boise

October 4-5 - Basic Training for Interpreters in Health Care - Twin Falls

Idaho State University is not associated with the Morales Dimmick Translation Service in any official capacity and does not receive any revenues from their business.
