of the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf
Helping recognize your educational pursuits since 1978!
The Certification Maintenance Program of RID was established to ensure our certifications retain value and guarantee quality with members who stay current on the latest theories, strategies, and techniques.
PCRID is an RID approved sponsor of continuing education activities and we are able to sponsor all four types of CEUs: Workshops & Conferences, Academic Coursework, Independent Study, and Participant Initiated None-RID Activities (PINRAs). RID has a limited number of staff members who process CEUs, therefore they rely on sponsors throughout the country to process CEU paperwork. At PCRID, our CMP sponsors are interpreters just like you, and they work on an entirely volunteer basis!
RID has a well developed set of guidelines that govern the acceptance of CEUs. PCRID is subject to regular audits to ensure we are upholding the membership-driven requirements and maintaining excellence with our CEU sponsorship. Help us help you! Submit your forms far enough in advance so that we can ensure you have all the needed documentation for your CEUs, and to ensure that you have filled out the documents properly. Because this is a volunteer effort, our work hours vary, especially around the holidays. Therefore, our timelines are designed to ensure we have sufficient time to review your forms and submit them to RID on time.
We look forward to working with you!

Rates for processing CEUs vary by the type of CEU requested. Organizational members' rates are significantly
