My password for myaccount.rid.org isn’t working. How do I log in?
Your CEC username is your RID member ID number, but your password may be different from the password you use to log in to your RID member portal. If you are not sure what your CEC password is, please use the “Forgot Password” tool at https://education.rid.org/password/forgot and enter the email address associated with your RID member account to reset it.

If I can’t attend a webinar live, will it be recorded?
Yes, most workshops will be available for viewing after the live event occurs. In the unlikely event the webinar will not be recorded, this will be advertised during the registration process.

I watched a webinar yesterday, when will my CEUs show up for that webinar?
Your CEUs will show up within 60 days from the completion of the workshop. Be sure that you’ve accessed the certificate of completion for the activity to be added to the queue for CEU processing.

How long do I have to complete the activity?
Effective 9/22/2023, you have five (5) years from the date of registration to complete the activity. An independent study must be completed within one year from the date the independent study plan was submitted.

Who do I contact if I’m having issues with the webinar?
Please email webinars@rid.org with any issues. Do remember that the response time is up to three business days. This will not affect your earning of CEUs.

What is the refund policy? 
Refunds will not be provided for purchased activities. You may exchange the activity for another archived activity of equal value if you have not started the activity. Please email webinars@rid.org with your request.

Enhancing Awareness Through Education Project

Aligning with RID’s mission to foster the growth of the ASL interpreting profession and community, EATE will provide educational opportunities that coincide with nationally recognized diversity months. These months include topics such as cultural awareness, heritage months, mental health, and more! CEUs will be offered throughout the calendar year to promote professional development while encouraging broadened awareness within our community.

This project aims to encourage individuals to participate in EATE events that are intended to raise awareness on topics that go beyond the surface, through CEU opportunities that provide education and professional development across a broad spectrum of lived experiences and issues. By providing a wide range of thoughtful learning opportunities, we hope this program will foster a culture of individual and professional growth year-round.

CLICK HERE FOR THE LIST OF TOPICS AND SCHEDULE

We are seeking content experts to present on these topics throughout the year. To create as much opportunity as possible, EATE will offer multiple webinars each month.

Submission deadlines are strict and set to the 10th of the month before a webinar is scheduled to be presented. Submissions do not guarantee selection; however, they may be considered for a different month or 2025 should the topic apply. Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Accessibility, and Belonging (DEIAB) are part of the cornerstones of RID, and we want to ensure presenters submit activities that will align with these values.
