The Arizona Interpreter Credentialing Program

The Arizona Supreme Court is committed to developing strategies for increasing the availability and quality of court interpreters and interpreter services throughout Arizona courts.

On January 6, 2015, the Arizona Supreme Court issued Administrative Order 2016-02 which established the Arizona Interpreter Credentialing Program with the goal of ensuring equal access to justice for all in Arizona courts by providing interpreters the opportunity to earn court interpreting credentials in Arizona.

To earn an Arizona Court Interpreting Credential candidates must complete several activities designed to gauge the interpreters level of language knowledge and interpreting skills required to perform competently during court proceedings.
