RID CMP CEU Processing Through RID

Participant Initiated Non-RID Activities (PINRA)

PCRID would be happy to process CEUs for your PINRA! Please see below for detailed instructions for submission. For further questions, contact ceu.pinra@pcrid.org for more information.


Participant Initiated Non-RID Activities (PINRAs) include activities that an interpreter wishes to attend, but are not offered by an RID approved sponsor. The activity must be sponsored by an organization with specific known standards and must have a specific format, educational objectives and purpose. This includes audited college courses (for credit courses, please visit the academic coursework page), non-credit courses at an educational institution, corporate training, community education, non-mandatory school district in-services, and organizational conventions/workshops.

A PINRA application must be completed and approved BEFORE the start of the event. At least 10 days advance notice is appreciated. Applications may be approved with less than 10 days' notice, however, this is not a guarantee. 


1. Fill out the PINRA request form. (www.tinyurl.com/pcridpinrarequest)

2. E-mail the following to ceu.pinra@pcrid.org:

      • A detailed copy of the event description. For a conference with multiple sessions, a description of each session is required
      • Presenter bios or other information to show that the instructor is appropriately knowledgeable 
      • A detailed agenda that shows the date, time, and schedule
      • A copy of your registration 
3. Get approval from the PINRA coordinator for:
      • The number and type of CEUs
      • What type of proof of attendance you will proffer
      • To begin the activity.
4. Submit proof of attendance within 30 days to ceu.pinra@pcrid.org.
