Certification Maintenance Program

Genessee Valley Region RID is approved by the RID Certification Maintenance Program (CMP) to sponsor Continuing Education Activities, PINRA and CEUs for college courses. Matthew Disch is our CMP Coordinator.

Each cycle is 4 years long, during which the interpreter must earn eight (8) CEUs (one hour equals 0.1 CEU). Six (6) CEUs must be in the area of Professional Studies. CEUs may also be earned in the area of General Studies, however only two (2) CEUs will count toward certification maintenance.

Through GVRRID, there are 3 ways you can earn CEUs.

  • Sponsor Initiated
  • PINRA (Participant Initiated Non-RID Activities)
  • Academic Coursework

GVRRID does not sponsor Independent Study CEUs.  To find a sponsor for Independent Studies please check the RID website to find a sponsor listing. 

See our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) or contact Matthew Disch if you can not find what you are looking for.

Also you may visit RID's Certificate Maintenance Program for information about what CMP is and how to earn credits through the program.
