The following certifications were placed under moratorium by the RID Board of Directors, effective January 1, 2016, and are not currently being awarded.

Restarting the awarding of these certifications is dependent upon

  • RID operationalizing the 2007 member motion regarding establishment of criteria for recognizing tests other than RID’s – such as Boys Town, BEI, or some other non-RID or CASLI created testing tool
  • The adoption of this criteria by the RID certified membership
  • Application of these entities for recognition of their test, and compliance of the test with the approved criteria


If and when these events happen, then the RID Board could determine lifting the moratorium on the appropriate certifications.

In the meantime, those that already have these certifications will continue to be recognized as RID-certified.  The moratorium does not affect those who already have the credential – only those who desire to gain it now.


Educational Certificate: K-12 (Ed:K-12)

This credential is fully recognized by RID, but the designation is no longer awarded by RID.  This designation went into moratorium effective January 1, 2016.

The EIPA assessment is still available through Boys Town.  More information on that can be found at
