As of January 1st, 2018, the IMIA/NBCMI will no longer honor the CEAP/RID/ATA granted CEUs. Instead, CMI certificants, for example, will need to earn IMIA/NBCMI approved CEUs in order to maintain their certification. CMI certificants will need to obtain a proof of attendance of each workshop. A sign-in/sign-out proof of attendance template sheets will be made available at the IMIA and NBCMI website, and it will be sent to any conference approved for IMIA/NBCMI CEU’s. These sign-in/sign-out proof of attendance sheets will have the workshop title, date & time, and the presenter’s name and signature. The NBCMI will rely on these forms when processing CMI national certification renewals. Please note that the IMIA/NBCMI will continue to honor all earned CEAP/RID/ATA CEU’s through 12/31/2017.

CCHI waives its application fee of $35 for those applicants who otherwise meet our eligibility criteria and who already hold a certification of ATA, RID, BEI, Federal or State courts, state of Washington for medical interpreters, or NBCMI. All applicants must sit for and pass CCHI’s certification exams to earn CCHI certification.
In addition, in February 2017, CCHI started to offer to such applicants a special examination fee of $150 for either CoreCHI™ or CHI™ exam. We are extending this offer throughout 2018 by request!This means that Spanish, Arabic and Mandarin interpreters, who hold certifications by ATA, Federal or State courts, state of Washington for medical interpreters, or NBCMI, will pay only $300 for their certification with CCHI. And interpreters of other spoken languages or ASL will pay only $150 total. Learn more.
