At the Tennessee Language Center, we offer a variety of professional development trainings and webinars. If you are bilingual, an established interpreter, or simply interested in a career in language services, TLC can help you with the next step in your professional life by increasing your skill levels.

We offer our trainings and webinars throughout the year so you can pick a time that works best for you. They are also offered online, so you can attend from anywhere. We pride ourselves on offering excellent, high-quality training at an affordable cost.

Our medical interpretation program prepares you to test to become a certified medical interpreter through either the CCHI or the NBCMI, the two organizations that certify medical interpreters in the U.S.

Our court interpretation program is the first step in the process of becoming an interpreter certified by the Tennessee Administrative Office of the Courts.
