“I have attended the 40-Hour Medical Interpreting Training program and I already got a job. It’s a flexible schedule that allows me to work from home. The training is great and it provides you with the knowledge and tools you need to be a professional interpreter. The instructor, Liliana Irwin, is very knowledgeable and professional—she is also a sweet lady! I’m so glad I found AHEC. It was the best choice!”

“This training was exceptional! I suggest that everyone that interprets or that deals with clients that speak a second language take this course. It was both fun and interactive! The instructor was very helpful and enlightening.”


“This course greatly improved my interpreting skills by adding knowledge, the role of an interpreter (professionalism, ethics, do’s and don’ts, legal aspects and implications) to name a few. I feel strongly that an advanced course would be beneficial to the organization. I also strongly recommend that every staff involved in the role of an interpreter should also attend this excellent course.
