Testimonials from our students:
​Hello Marcelo, 

Thank you for your message. I decided to take the exam tonight. I had this knowledge fresh in my head from the written exam preparation plus the oral class I’ve just finished with you. Thank you again for this excellent course. Your explanations were excellent, and they got stuck in my head!!! I truly appreciate all your corrections. In all honesty, this class (your class) should be taught in college.

Pleasure speaking to you earlier and thanks again for your wonderful course, which was, as I said, instrumental in giving me the skills and confidence I needed in order to pass the oral certification exam.

Leopoldo Urias CMI-Spanish is an excellent course and Marcelo is a great teacher. Thanks to this course I was able to pass the national exam and earn my certificate. The skype classes are essential to practicing consecutive interpreting. The course is also very useful because a lot of medical terminology is included. I highly recommend it to anyone that is interested in becoming certified as a Medical Interpreter. Thank you, Marcelo for your help!

Alexandra Torres CMI-Spanish

​Interpreter Prep with Marcelo was the best way to pass my exams and learn about interpreting. The class environment is great, he answers every question the students have professionally and even researches to make sure everything is accurate. In this course Marcelo doesn't only go over all the protocol that is required once you are a licensed interpreter but all the nuances that come with the job, and I found that extremely helpful. Now that I am in the field, I use a lot of his advice to get out of tight situations. I highly recommend enrolling into Intrepreter Prep, if you're serious about the career, you won't be disappointed. Thank you Marcelo!"

Marco Toledo CMI-Spanish

I just received my certification as a medical interpreter. I took the online preparation program with Marcelo Lopez. It was a great idea since I had a lot to learn, despite my 8 years of experience. I found that in this program I had all the necessary materials and tools to prepare myself to take the test. Marcelo was always a very dedicated, responsible, reliable and very knowledgeable instructor; he also took the time to personalize the instruction. I enjoyed studying in group and looked forward to the Skype sessions.

Cristina Camero CMI-Spanish

If you are serious about becoming a certified medical interpreter, then I highly recommend taking Marcelo’s course! I signed up for his online classes back in August 2016 and I received my certification just two months after completing the course on my first attempt! Marcelo’s in-depth knowledge in the medical field will give you everything you need to pass in addition to training you on how to become a successful interpreter in this exciting and rewarding career. 

Thank you Marcelo, I am so glad I invested in your classes, it was definitely all worth it!

Good afternoon, Marcelo, 

I'm Cara Lorenzo. I took your online course last November/December. I just wanted you let you know that I passed both the written and oral portions of the CMI on the first try. Just got my results back from the oral exam. I'm official now! Just thought you'd like to know. 

Have a great day, 

Cara Lorenzo, CMI-Spanish

I can’t thank Marcelo Lopez enough for his outstanding methods of teaching as well as his so well structured courses and personal interest in his students. After taking Marcelo’s courses I was able to pass the written portion of national exam for medical interpreters and I passed the
oral portion of the exam on my first attempt. For anyone who is serious about becoming a certified medical interpreter, Marcelo is a key Figure. I am looking forward to Marcelo offering more courses for medical interpreters being that I benefit immensely from his knowledge as a medical interpreter and doctor as well as his teaching methods. If I may be of assistance to somebody who is serious about taking these courses, you may talk to Marcelo to obtain my contact info.

For anyone considering becoming a Certified Medical Interpreter: Take Marcelo’s course! Not only the materials he provides are excellent but his instruction through skype lessons is very detailed and focused. I was able to pass my oral exam on the first try!

Irene Carr-Rollitt CMI-Spanish

I absolutely recommend this course not only because it is thorough but because it does adequately prepare one for the written and oral certification exam while keeping course cost very low when compared to other local college certification courses. Marcelo's professional experience as a medical doctor and interpreter makes a huge difference too since very rarely do we find interpreter teachers who are medical doctors too. This unique background allows him to offer feedback both from the doctor's perspective as well as the interpreter's. Bravo Marcelo! Thank you for a great course!

Maru Lozano CMI-Spanish

I thought this is an excellent course and gave me a very detailed, technical vocabulary from which to work. I benefited greatly from Marcelo's experience as an interpreter, as he gave many options for different ways for us to interpret the same thing. He also helped us to prepare more thoroughly for the exam, by giving us details about what the test will look like and how to study for it. I have already recommended this course too many friends, and we'll keep doing so in the future! Thank you so much.

Joy Menet CMI-Spanish

Marcelo's course definetely is very helpful to pass the medical exams. It covers all the main topics that we may encounter in the test plus many more. The way he conducts his classes is wonderful because he gives the opportunity to each student to practice and the rest of the students can learn at the same time. Even though I I have been interpreter for many years, I would not have passed the test without Marcelo's course help. Thank you M.

My thanks to Marcelo for helping me pass the exams required to obtain my certification issued by the National Board of Medical Interpreters. Without his informative and valuable course I don’t think I would have been able to accomplish such a task on my first try.
