RID CEU Sponsorship



The Sign Language Studies Department at Madonna University has had to make the difficult decision to temporarily suspend processing RID CEUs. Due to several changes at the university, the SLS Department does not have the capacity to act as a CMP Sponsor at this time. We hope to be able to start sponsoring again by May 2018, however we cannot guarantee that date. We will make an announcement once we are able to process CEUs again. 

If you have an event that has already been approved, you can submit the attendance sheets and summary of evaluations as usual – we will finalize all approved applications. 

While we are on our temporary hold, you can use the Directory to find other Sponsors: https://myaccount.rid.org/Public/Search/Sponsor.aspxhttps://myaccount.rid.org/Public/Search/Sponsor.aspx Thank you for understanding.

The Madonna University Sign Language Studies department (MUSLS) serves as an Approved Sponsor for CEUs through the Certificate Maintenance Program of the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, Inc. In this role, MUSLS approves continuing education activities for CEUs based on evidence that the activities meet RID’s CMP policies as stated in the CMP Standards and Criteria. Additional information on the Certificate Maintenance Program is available at RID’s website.

There are four categories of CEUs that are granted by RID:

  • Sponsor Initiated Activities (e.g. workshops and conferences)
  • Participant Initiated Non-RID Activities (PINRAs)
  • Academic Coursework
  • Independent Study

Due to the volume of request received, MUSLS provides sponsorship services only for Sponsor Initiated Activities. These include:

  • Workshops sponsored or co-sponsored by Madonna University
  • Workshops and conferences benefiting interpreters in Michigan

If you are hosting a workshop or conference for which you would like to request sponsorship, you can email MUSLS at ridceus@madonna.edu and request the information on how to apply for RID CEU sponsorship. A representative from MUSLS will respond to your email and supply you with the application as well as further instruction on what is needed to submit the completed application.

Requests, including submission of application and all supporting documentation, must be submitted to MUSLS at least 60 days prior to the date of the event.

MUSLS does not charge any fees for this service.

NOTE: MUSLS is an Approved Sponsor for RID CEUs only. Questions regarding Michigan BEI units, as well as information regarding CEUs for endorsements or ethics, must be directed to the Division on Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing.
