The purpose of this vlog is provide an update on the testing LLC. With as much information as has been shared, I thought it important to review a few events that led us to this point.
- During the summer of 2015, the RID Board placed a moratorium on testing. One of the many reasons was to allow time for the risk assessment.
- Members were already appointed to Certification Development Maintenance Groups (CDMGs). Since testing was on moratorium, so was their work.
- The Board determined to establish an LLC to focus on testing.
- During the March 2016 RID Board face to face meeting, the Board determined to lift the moratorium on the NIC and CDI, allowing registration to occur starting July 1, 2016.
We have established the LLC. The original vision was to to create a multi-partner LLC. When that didn’t occur, we established a single member LLC, which means ownership, transition support, and capitol investment required will come from RID.
The name of the new entity is the Center for the Assessment of Sign Language Interpretation
