NIC Certification

NIC (National Interpreter Certification)

Individuals who have achieved NIC certification are nationally-certified interpreters. The NIC Examination tests interpreting knowledge and skills in three critical domains:

  1. General knowledge of the field of interpreting through the NIC Knowledge Exam;
  2. Ethical decision making through the interview portion of the NIC Interview and Performance Exam; and
  3. Interpreting skills through the NIC Interview and Performance Exam.


Candidates earn NIC certification if they demonstrate professional knowledge and skills that meet or exceed the minimum professional standards necessary to perform in a broad range of interpretation and transliteration assignments in all three domains.

The NIC certification process begins with a multiple-choice NIC Knowledge Examination. Candidates who pass the knowledge examination and meet RID’s eligibility requirements may then take the NIC Interview and Performance Examination. The NIC Interview and Performance Examination is a vignette-based assessment using video to deliver and record the assessment.
 

 Anyone who wishes to seek NIC certification should first read the entire NIC Candidate Handbook to ensure a complete understanding of the certification process.

Special Accommodations for NIC Exams

RID complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and will accommodate requests from qualified candidates with a diagnosed disability for accommodations if the request is reasonable, properly documented and does not fundamentally alter the examination or jeopardize exam security.

Those requesting accommodations must send a hard-copy application, note the needed accommodations on the application and attach supporting documentation at least 30 days in advance of the scheduled exam date.
