The integrity of RID Certification requires a commitment to life-long learning.
The CMP is the vehicle used to monitor the continued skill development of certified interpreters. Certification maintenance is a way of ensuring that practitioners maintain their skill levels and keep up with developments in the interpreting field, thereby assuring consumers that a Certified interpreter provides quality interpreting services.
The CMP requires participants earn a minimum of 8.0 CEUs (80 contact hours) during each four-year certification maintenance cycle. Participation in the Certification Maintenance Program (CMP) is required of all Certified members of RID, and retention of one’s certificate(s) is dependent upon successful completion of each CMP cycle.
CMP’s Mission aims:
The Role of the CMP Approved Sponsor
The CMP began operation on July 1, 1994, and relies on RID Approved Sponsors to provide and approve appropriate educational activities for participants. These activities can be group activities, such as workshops, lectures or conferences, or independent study activities, such as mentoring and self-study.
Organizations, agencies, affiliate chapters and individuals seeking to be Approved Sponsors must complete an application. This was developed by the RID Professional Development Committee (PDC). In addition, the PDC reviews and makes determinations on all applications.
Sponsors are monitored regularly to ensure that their activities are of high quality and meet the needs of the program and the participants. If you would like to make a comment or ask a question regarding a sponsor, send an e-mail to the Manager of Education at RID Headquarters.
Professional Studies - A minimum of 6.0 CEUs (60 contact hours) must be related to:
General Studies – There is no general studies (GS) requirement, however up to 2.0 CEUs (20 contact hours) can count toward certification maintenance. This content area includes:
