    What is CCIE?

    The Commission on Collegiate Interpreter Education (CCIE) was founded in 2006 to promote professionalism in the field of sign language interpreter education through the process of accreditation. CCIE was established after nearly two decades of collaborative efforts of six stakeholder organizations, the National Alliance of Black Interpreters, Inc., National Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, National Association of the Deaf, Conference of Interpreter Trainers, Association of Visual Language Interpreters of Canada and the American Sign Language Teachers Association. In 2008, CCIE became a member of the Association of Specialized and Professional Accreditors (ASPA).
