Using the Lattice

Note that the Lattice starts from the bottom. Interpreters build experience and competencies to move to the top. It may be possible to enter the Lattice at various points if preceding required experiences and qualifications are in place.

Click on any part of the Lattice to learn about the requirements for that level and suggested resources for developing competency in healthcare interpreting.
