Medical:

Notes: 
"Unfortunately, at this time, there are no licensing requirements or monitoring procedures in place for freelance interpreters in Delaware, with 2 exceptions. The first is the requirement that any interpreter, for any language, working in the courts, must have AOC approval or AOC certification. I believe that is standard in all states. The second is a requirement that all "Interpreter / Tutors for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing" employed in public schools must receive a permit. This permit is granted based on RID Generalist Certification or an EIPA score of 4.0 on either the Elementary or Secondary Exams. Interpreters already working in schools, who do not meet the requirements, have until 2016 to comply." ~ Betsy Tucker, CI and CT
