STCC Introduces Interpreter Program

SPRINGFIELD — The need for medical and community interpreters is rapidly increasing, and so is the demand for trained professionals in the field.
The Center for Business and Technology at Springfield Technical Community College will offer a nine-week certificate program designed to prepare individuals for an entry-level career as a medical and community interpreter.
This program, developed and offered in collaboration with TransFluenci, a regional leader in translation and interpretation services, will prepare new and experienced interpreters to work in hospitals, health clinics, law offices, governmental agencies, and more, following the standards and ethics of the profession. The program meets the requirements of the International Medical Interpreters Assoc. for national certification.
The college will issue the Medical and Community Interpreting Certificate upon satisfactory completion of this program, and participants receiving the certificate will be given the opportunity to interview with Global Link Translations & Interpreting Services for potential employment as interpreters.
Classes will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6 to 9 p.m., starting May 28. Space is limited, and applications are now being accepted. Interested individuals should visit www.stcc.edu/wd or call (413) 755-4502 for details and registration information.
