Immigration court interpreters are an essential element in the application of immigration laws. The immigration courts are flooded with respondents waiting their turn to be heard before the court.
Currently, there is no certification exam for immigration court interpreters. According to SOS International LLC (SOSi), candidates must have one year of experience in the legal field, pass a screening test, complete a training program, pass a final completion examination, and finally pass a performance evaluation to be considered an immigration court interpreter. The online Immigration Court Interpreter course addresses all the elements required except the one-year experience in the legal field.
