Linguava Launches Interpreter Academy
The program, approved by Oregon Health Authority, is led by Valeria McNulty who has worked as a Nationally Certified and State Qualified interpreter for almost 20 years in medical, legal and educational settings. She has provided training to interpreters since 2009 and has recently become a licensed trainer to deliver The Community Interpreter 60-hour training.
"The medical system in the US is so complex that even the most educated person has trouble navigating and understanding it. As interpreters, we work in a lot of different healthcare settings; that is why it is not only important but also necessary for us to be familiar with it and be the best we can be in our professional field. The need for trained interpreters keeps growing every day, making this profession not only in high demand but also very lucrative. So whether you're starting in life or wanting to make a career change later in life, come with us! Here at Linguava Interpreter Academy, we would love to be part of that journey with you," she said.
The Linguava Interpreter Academy's curriculum focuses on concepts and terminology in the medical field so that upon graduation, students will feel confident in entering any healthcare setting to interpret accurately for patients and medical professionals.
"I am pleased to announce the launch of the Linguava Interpreter Academy. This groundbreaking initiative is a testament to our commitment to providing the best quality interpreting services in the language access industry.
Our goal is to empower patients and give them a seat at the table to fully participate in their own healthcare. By equipping interpreters with specialized skills in medical interpretation, elevating the standards of their expertise, and advancing them toward becoming Qualified or Certified Medical interpreters, we can achieve this goal together," said Linguava CEO, David Brackett
