"What sets them beyond other companies is the personal attention. I always got questions answered promptly, and they were supportive and attentive. It felt like they wanted me to succeed, instead of wanting my money."-Kyle L. "An amazing journey. I recommend this course to anyone serious about medical interpretation."-Salma S. “Thank you for your outstanding work in preparing this course and providing me with tools to feel confident as an interpreter and curious to keep learning. The payment plan also made the course feasible. I completed the online course in about two months, and I was able to find work.”-Vicky G. “ALTA provided a wonderful training experience for me. They have excellent e-learning materials you can complete at your own pace with abundant supporting resources including the textbook, roleplay training material, and glossaries for different languages.”-Boai L.
