A program dedicated toward personal and professional growth for Associate members.
RID’s Associate Continuing Education Tracking (ACET) program is a vehicle through which the continued skill development of RID Associate members is documented to demonstrate the individual’s commitment to and participation in the field of interpreting.
The purpose of the ACET program is to document and track the CEUs earned for the fiscal year by interpreters successfully completing learning activities approved by RID sponsors.
All RID Associate Members are enrolled in the ACET program. Tracking of activities begins once the dues and fees are received for the fiscal year (July 1 – June 30).
No CEU Requirements
Associate members have access to CEU tracking via the ACET program, but RID does not require that Associate members earn a minimum number of CEUs during their ACET cycle.
Provides documentation for state requirements; demonstrates commitment to the profession; provides official documentation of continuing education efforts, which may prove useful in response to job postings and/or job advances; can be utilized as an organization tool in maintaining records in an easy and accurate fashion.
“The benefit that comes to mind is that I do get a transcript and have used that with my resume when applying for jobs. It has been impressive to show how diligently I am working to improve my skills and professionalism on the climb to certification.”

ACET helps you stay organized.
“For me the ACET program is a big luxury for a small price. I am a very busy woman who keeps all my certificates in one place. But to have a tracking of my workshops helps me keep things in order for resumes and (keeps me) professional.”

RID’s purpose is to serve equally our members, profession, and the public by promoting and advocating for qualified and effective interpreters in all spaces where intersectional diverse Deaf lives are impacted.
