4.56 (18 votes)

Come join the Certification Committee in parsing through the history of RID credentials and be the first to offer feedback on a new approach for what interpreters can and should call themselves depending on which credentials they hold.

This activity is approved for 0.15 RID Professional Studies CEUs.
