Don’t let your national medical interpreter certification expire.

If you are a Certified Medical Interpreter (CMI) or a Certified Healthcare Interpreter (CHI), you’re required to complete a specific amount of CEU credits each year in order to keep your certification active.

  • CCHI requires 32 hours of continuing education training every 4 years, with a minimum of 4 hours coming from performance-based training.
  • NBCMI requires 30 hours (3 CEUs) of approved training, within 5 years of your certification.

It’s easy to forget about your continuing education requirements and fall behind. But ALTA’s continuing education programs offer you easy options for earning your CEU’s from home, from on-demand lessons to private coaching sessions.

Just choose an option below and start working toward your recertification today!

Online Testimonial I have to say that the two hours that I spent with ALTA were more valuable to me than spending an exorbitant amount of money on going to a conference for education. The instant feedback and tips have helped me become a better interpreter" - Kippie Lipham CCHI Certified Spanish Interpreter, Wellstar Health System
