BEI Interpreter Testing

The purpose of the IL BEI interpreter testing and certification process is to provide certification options to Illinois interpreters.  The certification tests are both proficiency-based and criterion-referenced evaluations.

Candidates are highly recommended to review the BEI Manual to become familiar with the general format, content, and evaluation criteria used in the examinations, as well as, explain IDHHC's policies and procedures for the testing process.

Important Notice: The Illinois BEI Interpreter Testing is not administered in the months of November and December due to the Licensure Renewal Period. You may submit the completed application and required payment to be scheduled for the exams after the end of the Licensure Renewal Period.
