Our Oregon Health Authority approved training program is just what you need to succeed as a health care interpreter.

affordable and CONVENIENT

Our 60 hour program costs just $40 per module, leaving you with extra cash in your pocket.  And our flexible weekend schedule of eight modules allow you to finish the training when you have the time.

high quality instruction

All our instructors are well qualified and experienced at teaching interpreters.  Our faculty includes two medical doctors, a lawyer, and several health care interpreter advocates.  The program itself was designed by language access expert Maria Michalczyk, who pioneered legislation in Oregon for health care interpreters.

advances your required professional accreditation

Recently revised Oregon Health Bill 2419 pushes health care providers to work with professionally accredited interpreters.  As a result, more interpreter agencies and hospitals are looking for Oregon state certified and qualified health care interpreters.  Our training program fulfills your education requirement for accreditation, and helps you understand the oral and written exams.


This class really benefits me. I love learning about the role of the interpreter. This course helps me improve my interpreting, and I feel supported to pursue excellence in my profession. Thank you OHCIA!

I am beginning my career as an interpreter, and this course gives me a community and inspiration to get started. I am training to be a qualified health care interpreter, but I also feel that I am learning how to teach my community about the importance of interpreters. I really appreciate the low cost of the program, and I am enjoying the class!
