THE COMMUNITY INTERPRETER INTERNATIONAL (TCII) is the only national 40-hour licensed certificate program for community interpreting. This 42-hour Training of Trainers (TOT) licenses trainers across the U.S. and worldwide to deliver that program. THE COMMUNITY INTERPRETER INTERNATIONAL and its TOT constitute the most comprehensive, in-depth program anywhere in the U.S. for trainers who seek to train community interpreters working in a broad spectrum of public and private services. This dynamic, interactive TOT program emphasizes skills building, role plays, small group work, video vignettes, discussion and case studies. It is designed to train interpreters in medical, educational and social services.
Since 2004, Cross-Cultural Communications has delivered its training-of-trainers (TOT) program for THE COMMUNITY INTERPRETER INTERNATIONAL from Florida to California. It comes in two formats: a six-day format for those who have attended another 40-hour program but have NOT attended TCII; and a four-day format for prior graduates of TCII. The longer format begins with a special two-day compressed session of TCII, followed by the regular four-day TOT. Any graduate of TCII may attend the four day portion of the TOT without attending the two-day introductory session, at the lower price of $1,875. To register for the four-day session please email us a copy of your TCII training certificate. (TCII training must have been given by CCC or TCII-licensed agency.)
This program includes a certificate and is approved by the American Translators Association for 10 ATA CEPs.
