Continuing Education

Anytime that you register for a workshop for CEUs, make sure that it is approved by the licensure board and it is an RID approved workshop.

Here are a few outlets for CEUs:

Eastern Kentucky University Department of American Sign Language and Interpreter Education Outreach Program.

Kentucky Association of the Deaf at times offer CEUs for its annual conference.

Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) has a database and you can see if your area will be offering any workshops soon.

Always check the KCDHH Bulletin board for information.
