Train the Trainer

Clients throughout Massachusetts and across the country effectively address their needs for medical interpreters with the help of our train-the-trainer program, delivered in conjunction with the national Area Health Education Center network. After a core group of qualified and experienced interpreters receives the training they can serve as in-house trainers for other staff members and volunteers. These trainers’ ability to train additional future interpreters becomes an essential resource for their organizations.

Our staff provides on-site training to enable these trainers to teach our 60-hour Fundamentals of Medical Interpreting course.

Our train-the-trainer curriculum provides these already-skilled interpreters with the knowledge and tools to be able to competently assess, motivate, teach, and evaluate future medical interpreter students. 

Discussion during our full-day session includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Guidelines and objectives for the session
  • Principles of adult learning
  • Role of the trainer
  • Different learning styles
  • Techniques for responding to needs of different types of learners
  • Experiential learning cycle
  • Open- and closed-ended questions
  • Constructive feedback
  • Student assignments
