A.        Sponsor Appeals

Applicants whose Approved Sponsor status has been denied or Sponsors whose status has been withdrawn by the PDC may appeal that decision.  Such appeals should be directed to the Professional Development Manager in the form of requests for reconsideration and must be filed within thirty (30) days of receipt of notice of denial or withdrawal. The Professional Development Manager will refer the appeal to the PDC.   The appellant may provide additional information to assist the PDC in its review.

B.         Participant Appeals  

Individuals whose CEUs for a Continuing Education program have been denied by a Sponsor or RID Headquarters may appeal that decision. The appeal must be filed within thirty (30) days of receipt of notice of denial of credit. Please fill out the form completely. The form must filled out online at www.rid.org. An appeal must be based on the following:

  • Procedural error on the part of the approved sponsor
  • Procedural error on the part of RID Headquarters
  • Sponsors decision was not based upon the policies within the Standards and Criteria
  • Sponsor did not follow the policies within the Standards and Criteria

If the Sponsor has been paid, then the monies must be refunded, if the decision of the RID Headquarters is to recognize CEUs for the activity.
