THE INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL INTERPRETERS ASSOCIATION:
From: Carolyn Campos – Administrator, International Medical Interpreters Association (IMIA)
A) Are Dinjes CE classes approved for CMI and IMIA credits?
“Yes, they are. For your reference, the CEU Program evaluates all continuing education programs, like your three training classes mentioned above, for relevance to medical interpreting in order for these programs to grant IMIA CEUs to participants. All CMIs -Certified Medical Interpreters, must keep track of their CEUs certificates. The National Board, an independent division of the IMIA, evaluates each CMI’s certificates to grant individual recertifications.
B) Is there any website where I can verify this information?
“Yes, as you can see in IMIA Educational Registry website, our classes appear in the registry as a training that provides IMIA CEU’s.
You may find our IMIA-CMI approved classes at the IMIA Educational Registry at
THE NATIONAL BOARD OF MEDICAL INTERPRETERS:
“From: Beverly North, Registrar – The National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters –
“As long as the seminars are approved by the IMIA and listed on their website, that is all we will need, as long as they specifically advance the skills of medical interpreters. The candidates would need to submit a certificate stating a workshop/seminar title, signatures and number of hours or CEUs.”
