Request a Free Professional Interpreter
If no LEP Basic Training course is available in a 50 mile radius of the student’s area, contact the Member Resource Center for a free professional interpreter.
You or your employer must call 3-4 weeks before starting Basic Training.
Call the MRC at 1-866-371-3200.
Bring a Community Interpreter
Students may bring a friend or relative as their own community interpreter. The interpreter must be over 18 years old and cannot be the student’s consumer.
Reserve a seat in the class for the interpreter by checking “Brining an Interpreter” when registering for the class. Or call the Member Resource Center at 1-866-371-3200.
You and your Community Interpreter should read these helpful tips before your first community interpretation session. You are responsible for telling your interpreter when and where the class will be held and for reserving space for them.
