The institute’s teaching strategies are sensitive to the needs of adult learners, providing skill building and life coaching for a diverse student population.
We are confident that our interpreter training programs provide individuals the tools necessary to become competent and qualified interpreters, whether you are working with consecutive or simultaneous interpreting. We also hope that you are motivated to pursue higher education in the healthcare field, human services or educational careers as a result of participating in our well-rounded interpreting training program. We also provide workshops and courses in order to help interpreters prepare themselves for both certifications. Some of these courses can be done online or at one of our schools. We offer certificates of accomplishment and attendance depending on the course.
CCCI and its faculty, staff and language coaches are committed to providing an equal educational opportunity to all students. One of the facets of the CCCI experience is the opportunity to learn in an environment where there are other individuals from varied backgrounds, languages and characteristics which include race, ethnicity, religion, spiritual beliefs, national origin, age, gender, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, disability and political affiliation.
