Under the Interpreter for the Deaf Act of 2007, interpreters are required to have a license to provide interpreting services after January 1, 2009, unless an exemption applies. Interpreter licenses are based on proficiency levels. The proficiency levels determine which interpreting assignments an interpreter can accept. The actual licenses are color coded:
Master – Silver
Advanced – Green
Intermediate – Yellow
Provisional – Red
The regional (shown on map) and alphabetical listing are sorted by proficiency level. If you are searching for a specific interpreter, you can search the list by pressing “Ctrl F” and type the interpreter’s name.
