What is the oral portion of a Medical Interpreter Accreditation Exam?
Once a candidate passes the written portion of any of the 2 National Accreditation Exams (NBCMI or CCHI) he or she is eligible to take the oral portion of the exam.
The National Board’s (NBCMI) oral exam is computer-based and is 45-60 minutes in length. Candidates have 30 minutes to complete 12 mini-scenarios and 10 minutes to complete 2 sight translation passages. The components to be tested are: Mastery of Linguistic Knowledge of English & Working Language, Interpreting Knowledge and Skills, Cultural Competence, Medical Terminology and Medical Specialties. Simultaneous interpreting, written translation, and sight translation into English are not tested.
The Commission’s (CCHI) oral examination is also conducted online via computer and scored by independent raters. The language-specific performance exam includes a demonstration of interpreting skills. Candidates will be interpreting a Healthcare Encounter utilizing the consecutive and simultaneous interpreting modes, performed accurately, within a cultural and environmental context. Knowledge of sight translation and written translation concepts will be necessary.
