About the Course

Are you interested in leading Certified Interpretive Host (CIH) courses for other interpreters? Interested trainers who have taken a CIH course and already have their Certified Interpretive Trainer (CIT) professional certification with the National Association for Interpretation (NAI) are eligible to enroll in this course and become sanctioned to teach the CIH curriculum.

This course is designed to prepare you to teach NAI's CIH curriculum. Learning alongside other participants, you will practice evaluating and giving feedback on interpretive presentations and develop a 20-minute training segment that you will present during the course. You will build your skills as a trainer and leave ready to award CIH certificates to interpreters at your own site, or serve as a contractor to sites without a trainer on staff.

You must take a CIH Train-the-Trainer course in order to teach the CIH curriculum. If you enroll in this course, you must have previously taken a CIH course and be a Certified Interpretive Trainer (CIT) with NAI by the day the course starts. For more information about CIH or the CIT credential, please visit our website.
