|Newly Certified Information|
Testing measures skills and competence at the time the interpreter was tested. Once certified, members must maintain their certification through continuing education and membership in RID. This is required of all certified members, including RID certified interpreters and transliterators, NIC certified interpreters, NAD certified interpreters and certain interpreters from external organizations under contract with RID.
CMP CEU Requirements in a nutshell:
8.0 Total CEUs with at least 6.0 in PS CEUs
You may begin earning RID CEUs for your new certification cycle any time on or after your certification start date. (Your certification start date is the Results Sent date shown on the Track Tests page in your RID account.)
Certification Cycle Extension Request
(Extension requests for cycles ending December 31, 2012, are no longer being accepted.)
CMP Cycle Option When Earning Additional Certificates
Certified interpreters earning additional RID certifications will be given the option to begin a new cycle. If they opt to begin a new cycle, the CEUs earned in the previous cycle will not be carried into the new cycle. CEUs earned during the new cycle will serve to maintain all certificates held.
Loss of Generalist Certification
Any active certified member not satisfying the requirements of the certification maintenance program by the end of his/her cycle will cease to be certified.
Loss of Specialist Certification
Active certified members holding a specialist certification who do not satisfy the required two (2) CEUs in the field of specialization, but do accrue the required eight (8) CEUs with at least six (6) CEUs in professional studies, will only lose their specialty certification. They will maintain any other certifications held.
Certified: Inactive status is for certified members who are not currently interpreting. They are not required to meet the CEU requirements while on Certified: Inactive status. In order to maintain this status, Certified: Inactive dues must be paid annually and the certificant cannot be working as an interpreter.
