Commission for Medical Interpreter Education

 


 



CMIE Mission Statement

To enhance both the competitiveness of medical interpreting educational entities and the quality of medical interpreting education by promoting and facilitating an accreditation process of educational standards.

 




What is Accreditation?

Accreditation is the process by which a standards developing organization such as the IMIA recognizes or endorses a program or organization that meets specific measurable standards, after a thorough review process by auditors, and a site visit. This is similar to the process of certification of individuals to recognize an individuals knowledge and skills for meeting specific measurable standards, except that it is for organizations. Many of you are familiar with organizations that have met the ISO 9000 Standard, for example or the How NBCMI and CCHI achieved the NCCA Accreditation for Certifying Bodies.
