Online Multilingual Language Access Training

The New Mexico Center for Language Access (NMCLA) is a program of the Administrative Office of the Courts, created with funding support from the State Justice Institute to ensure language access across the New Mexico justice system. The Center offers a variety of online training options for court interpreter certification candidates, bilingual employees of the courts and other justice system agencies and for already certified or working interpreters. Additionally, NMCLA offers consulting and custom training services for state courts and other agencies that need to provide language access under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
