Community-based Interpreter Training Programs

In addition to the LITP programs, there are community-based interpreter training programs that are delivered by interpretation service provider (ISP) agencies.  
 
The OCCI's accreditation framework will include a means by which interpreters who have successfully completed community-based interpreter training will be recognized for this prior learning.  The Prior Learning Assessment Recognition (PLAR) component is being developed to ensure a standardized mechanism through which community interpreters may obtain recognition for the competency training they received outside the formal LITP education program.
