Instructions for Participant Initiated Non-RID Activities

Instructions for CMP Participants

Step One:
Choose the activity/conference you want to attend. The activity/conference does not have to
pertain strictly to interpreting. It can be a regional or national conference of another profession or
could be a formal in-service training by an employer. As long as the activity is educationally
beneficial to you as an interpreter, it can earn CEUs for you!

Step Two:

Contact an RID Approved Sponsor and secure their agreement to process the paperwork for the
activity/conference. Be sure to discuss the Content Area for which you are applying
(Professional Studies or General Studies).
How many CEUs will be earned? (1 CEU = 10 contact hours)

Step Three:

Complete the Participant Initiated Non-RID Activities form from your RID Approved
Sponsor. Attach pertinent documentation such as an agenda or program book.
Return form and documentation to your Sponsor who will keep the form until your activity is

This form must be sent to your Sponsor before the activity begins!!

Step Four:

Upon completion of the activity, attain a certificate of attendance or documentation such as an agenda or program book signed by the presenter or organizer as proof of your attendance. Send documentation to your RID Approved Sponsor.
