The National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID) has graduated the first class from its Health Care Interpreting certificate program, the first program of its kind to be offered anywhere.  A total of 13 students completed the 12-month program, which was taught by members of NTID’s American Sign Language and Interpreting Education department.  Students in the program took courses on the Rochester Institute of Technology campus and completed field observations at medical settings off campus.  The graduating students were awarded a Certificate in Health Care Interpreting from NTID and will earn up to 16 Continuing Education Units from the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf.
