Medical Interpreting Course

HAVERHILL, MA - Northern Essex Community College (NECC) is offering a comprehensive course in Medical Interpreting for individuals interested in interpretation for hospitals, clinics, and human services agencies. Medical interpreters are in great demand nationwide. In Massachusetts, where interpreters are legally mandated in acute-care hospital and behavioral health hospitals, the need for trained medical interpreters is booming. Employment of interpreters and translators is expected to grow 42 percent by 2020.

NECC will offer a 54-hour class from June 3 to August 5 (no class on July 3), Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:00 – 9:00 p.m., at the college’s Riverwalk location in Lawrence (near the North Andover line).

Designed to prepare individuals for entry-level careers as medical interpreters, this program is developed and offered in collaboration with TransFluenci EDU, a leader in preparing new and experienced interpreters to work in hospitals and other health care settings, following the standards and ethics of the profession. The course meets the requirements of the National Board for Medical Interpreter Certification.

The course is open to all languages, but students must be able to fully comprehend and communicate in both English and at least one other language. The college will issue the Medical Interpreting Certificate of Completion upon satisfactory completion of this program. The instructor is an experienced medical interpreter who will provide guidance on how to find a job in the field. To register, call 978 556-3700.

  •  Successful Conservation Collaboration

    On June 17, the sophomore class of Sanborn Regional High School made a field trip to the Old Frye Town Forest, one of Kingston's five town forests, to assist the Kingston Conservation Commission in the removal of invasive plants from the area near the trailhead, notably, an extensive and aggressive patch of Japanese knotweed. This project was the culmination of the school's third year of intra-curricular collaboration with the Commission to address local environmental issues, and to make conservation an area of study and research. Congratulations from the Commission to the teachers and students for a job well done!
