Sign Language Interpreter Contracts and Resources Program

 

Certified Sign Language Interpreters who wish to accept jobs under the Master Contract can register with ODHH anytime throughout the year.

Registration includes submitting a background application through DSHS and sending a copy of your initial certification to ODHH along with a head shot for your badge. Once you are approved, the agencies who have a Master Contract can book you. Each agency has their own business criteria, so please communicate with these agencies if you intend to work through them.

Please email a copy of your Certification and headshot to signlanguageinterpreters@dshs.wa.gov

Register if this is your first time.

Renew if you have previously registered.


If you are a new interpreter, you will need to submit a copy of their initial certification and a headshot for their badge to the SLICR Program email: SignLanguageInterpreters@dshs.wa.gov.

We are sending everyone new badges this year. If you want your headshot picture updated, please send it to the SLICR Program email.

If you have any questions about registering or renewing with ODHH or need assistance with the process, please contact the Sign Language Interpreter Contracts & Resources Program Manager, Berle Ross at Berle.Ross@dshs.wa.gov or 360-339-4559.
