According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, interpreting is one of the fastest growing professions in the United States.
The growth rate of this profession is 18%, which is “much faster than the national average.” There is a need for interpreters all over the United States and other countries. However, there aren’t enough qualified interpreters to meet the demand. Although there are many bilingual individuals, being bilingual is not enough to work as a professional interpreter.
If you’re bilingual, you already possess the key element to work as a professional interpreter. You simply need the training, and in as little as 40 hours, an entire new industry will be open to you. We will show you how. You can begin working as a professional interpreter immediately upon completing the Professional Interpreter Training program. After that, you can also specialize in medical interpreting by taking the Professional Medical Interpreter program.
