KITA's mission is to facilitate access to health care and other essential services for the Limited-English Proficient (LEP) population and the Deaf community by providing training and continuing education opportunities for interpreters, promoting adherence to professional standards, and raising public awareness of interpreters.
Sign- and spoken-language interpreters help people access community, educational, medical, legal and other services. To find out how to become qualified in any of these specializations, follow the link below.
KITA offers continuing education opportunities for interpreters looking to maintain their certification or anyone interested in expaniding their knowledge of the field. We have seminars, webinars and workshops year around.
