SYRACUSE — Onondaga Community College and the Multicultural Association of Medical Interpreters are partnering to offer a new training course.

The 150-hour course will be offered Saturdays from April 6 to Oct. 12. It is aimed at those interested in serving as professional interpreters in the medical field, according to the college.

The course will combine lectures and skill exercises, including one-on-one coaching and evaluation. Students must be fluent in two languages and pass a language skill screening to take part.

The screen cost is $75 and will be deducted from the tuition price of $1,400 when a student registers.
