Georgia Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf


Follow the steps below and fill out the Academic Coursework Activity Form.  

Attach any required documentation.


Choose the course you want to attend at an accredited college or university. The course does not have to pertain strictly to interpreting; it can be a course in Linguistics, Business, Psychology, Social Work, etc.  As long as the course is educationally beneficial to you as an interpreter, it can earn CEUs for you!


Understand how many CEUs may be awarded for your coursework. The standard formula for determining the number of CEUs per course is as follows:

  • 1.5 CEUs per credit hour for a course taken in a semester session.
  • 1.0 CEUs per credit hour for a course taken in a quarter session.


Complete the Academic Coursework  Form below. Attach the required documentation such as a course outline and proof that the college/university is accredited through the Council for Higher EducationAccreditation (CHEA).  Please visit to obtain this information. You will receive a copy of the information you submit at the email you provide in the form.  Wait for GaRID to email you with your Academic Coursework approval.
