CMP Logo - JPEGOverview

The Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf through its network of Approved Sponsors is arguably the largest promoter of continuing education for American Sign Language interpreters in the United States. Thousands of hours of education programming is made available to interpreters and the quality of these event guided by the Standards & Criteria set forth by RID. Audits of the Sponsors’ administration and processing of these educational programs are routinely conducted by the Professional Development Committee (PDC) of RID. These regular audits serve to confirm the Approved Sponsors are maintaining the quality and integrity of programming that will enhance interpreters’ knowledge and skills.

These training modules are being developed to provide training about the RID CMP Process.  The series is designed to benefit a variety of stakeholders:

  1. New Sponsors
  2. Current Sponsors
  3. Auditors
  4. ALL RID members (certified & ACET)

The series is provided for these purposes:

  1. Onboarding training to new sponsors
  2. Refresher training for existing sponsors
  3. Training to Auditors
  4. Training & transparency for all RID members (certified & ACET)

The series modules vary in length and will take 1-3 hours to complete each module.  Modules are designed to benefit all stakeholders mentioned previously. However, Module 6 is designed specifically for Auditors.

RID appreciates your interest and commitment to understanding and participating in the CMP system.  If you have any questions about the CMP process, please contact the RID CMP Coordinator at cmp@rid.org.
