About Interpreter CEUs
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) go by a variety of names depending on the state or organization that approves them. They are called CIMCE units in California and CIE credits in other states, for example. Regardless of their name, CEUs provide evidence that certified interpreters are fulfilling their professional obligation to maintain their interpreting proficiency through ongoing training. For many states and professional organizations, they are required to maintain certification. There are three ways to receive CEUs:
- CEU Applications by NCI: NCI applies for approval for specific trainings. We apply for CEUs for relevant webinars with the following professional organizations and state courts:
- American Translators Association
- Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters
- Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf *
- Pre-approved CEU Providers: NCI is recognized as a pre-approved provider of CEUs by the following states:
As a “pre-approved provider,” all NCI’s trainings that are relevant to a given certification are assumed to be approved. It is important to note that the topic of a given training must be relevant to the work of the interpreter. If your state has a list of pre-approved providers and we are not included, please let us know: email@example.com!
- CEU Applications by Individual Interpreters: If NCI has not applied to your state or organization, you may still be able to receive CEUs for our trainings. Most states/organizations have a process for individual interpreters to apply directly for CEUs for trainings they’ve taken. That process typically requires, at a minimum, proof of attendance, such as our certificate of completion. Check with your state/organizations to be sure you understand its rules. If you need anything additional, please let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org!
