Language Testing and Certification Program

Latest News

  • NEW - Background Checks
  • NEW Signed Code of Conduct
  • SCHEDULE A TEST November 1, 2018: December test dates have been released (Olympia and Seattle). If all spots are full - please check back in early December for January tests. For test information see: Examination Manual 
  • NEW - Your test scores will be emailed to you once they are available. Please make sure you use ONLY ONE valid email address when you sign up for test appointments.
  • SB6245 (2018 Legislative Session) limits testing in languages for which interpreter request fill rates in the prior year are 90% or higher. Fill rate data from 2017 shows no languages reaching the 90% threshold so LTC WILL NOT be limiting testing by language through the end of 2018. In early 2019, we will re-examine 2018 fill rate data and post updated information.
