Until now, users of interpreters such as Language Services Providers, hospitals, professional services firms, and government offices haven’t had access to a pool of standardized foundational training in interpreting. To complicate matters more, issues such as IRS compliance hinder the ability for companies to offer internal training to contractors, leaving many without a viable option for adding new qualified interpreters/linguists.
With V.I.I.’s courses, your company can refer potential contractors to receive training, keeping your company compliant with IRS regulations as well as benefiting from standardized training. Additionally, you can contact Virginia Institute of Interpreting directly to recruit new interpreters.
Access to newly-trained individuals will give you a competitive edge when recruiting interpreters/linguists. Also, our interpreter/linguist training includes language fluency tests in which the results are measured using the Interagency Language Roundtable scale. Therefore, when you recruit a graduate of Virginia Institute, you can rest assured that these linguists have already met the necessary criteria that will make your recruitment process smoother and a lot less costly.
We also offer hospitals the choice to enhance the skills of their bilingual staff through our courses. That way they can be prepared to act as interpreters when needed.
