Interpreter Language Skills Assessment

The language skills assessment will complete your accreditation, once you have passed all of the technical competencies training components above, either through classroom or online training. A test can be scheduled with MCIS before, during or after your training session. Results take 3-6 weeks to come back.

The cost of the Language Skills Assessment is $195 + HST = $220.35. You only need to pass one of the available tests to receive accreditation. If you do not pass a test, a different version of the same test, or a different test altogether, can be scheduled immediately by making another payment, depending on availability. If you wish to attempt the same test, you must wait for 3 months.
