january 2011 – The Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI) congratulates the first group of healthcare interpreters to earn the CHI™ (Certified Healthcare Interpreter™) Certification and AHI™ (Associate Healthcare Interpreter™) Credential. The CHI™ and AHI™ credentials are the nation’s highest credential available to healthcare interpreters and professional recognition of their qualification. We have been anticipating this moment for years and are thrilled to introduce 235 trained, qualified, and credentialed healthcare interpreters – 130 CHI™ certificants and 105 AHI™ recipients. This is a monumental day for healthcare providers, patients, coordinators of interpreting services, and language service providers who, with the CHI™ and AHI™ credentials, can now ensure the competency of healthcare interpreters across a wide variety of languages in a valid, consistent, and reliable way.
