Assuring Equality, Respect, Accessibility and Independence for All Individuals with a Hearing Loss
Under the Interpreter for the Deaf Act of 2007, interpreters are required to have a license to provide interpreting services after January 1, 2009, unless an exemption applies. Interpreter licenses are based on proficiency levels. The proficiency levels determine which interpreting assignments an interpreter can accept.
The purpose of the IL BEI interpreter testing and certification process is to provide certification options to Illinois interpreters. The certification tests are both proficiency-based and criterion-referenced evaluations.
There is no Save-the-Date for the annual fall conference at this time due to budget. However if you’d like to view the 2015 Fall conference evaluation and information, please go to the conference page.
