Certification Testing

MUSC Health serves as a testing site for the Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI), National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters (National Board) and the Center for the Assessment of Sign Language Interpreters (CASLI), which is affiliated with the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf.

Charleston is South Carolina’s oldest city; it continues to impress visitors with its rich history, breathtaking scenery, and geographical location, making it an ideal testing location. Testing slots are normally open on Thursdays and Fridays from 8am to 4pm. Therefore, it allows the testing candidate to combine this event with a weekend of fun and relaxation in our exciting city.

ATA Certification Exam

MUSC Health also hosts the American Translators Association (ATA) certification exam. MUSC Health only provides the venue and proctors the exam; therefore you must enroll and make all arrangements directly with ATA. Once testing dates are decided upon, they can be found on the ATA website. Please contact ATA for more information.
