The following information is definitions and directions for filling out the form at the bottom of this page.


Professional Studies contain content that directly applies or affects the field of interpreting/ transliterating. These are areas of investigation that enhance the interpreting process regardless of the setting.  Click here for examples.


General Studies include topics that enhance the interpreter/transliterator’s base of general or world knowledge. The study must still be a legitimate educational program with clearly defined educational goals and measurable objectives.


Define the target audience for each continuing education activity. In planning the activity, Sponsors should assess the needs of the target audience. The target audience should be clearly specified in all promotional outreach, media, and materials.


Specify the observable, measurable educational objectives of each continuing education activity. These objectives must be published in promotional outreach, media, and materials announcing the activity.  

Must be measurable. VIEWS has published an article describing how to write Educational Objectives.  Click Bloom’s Taxonomy list of measurable verbs to download the verbs.  Other resources to aid in writing measurable objectives include:


The content knowledge level is related to participant’s familiarity with the topic, regardless of their interpreting skill or experience. The content knowledge level should be classified according to the following definitions.

  • Little/none: This level assumes little or no information on the part of the participant within the topic area. The focus of the activity is a general orientation and increase of understanding. This category also includes activities that assume the audience to have diverse levels of knowledge due to the nature of the event. For example, professional issue forum, conference, discussion group, etc.
  • Some: This level assumes the participant has some familiarity with the literature and professional practice within the topic covered. The general focus of the activity is to increase understanding and application of the participant.
  • Extensive: This level assumes the participant has extensive familiarity with current literature and professional practice within the topic covered. The focus of the activity is upon recent advances, future directions and applications of research.
  • Teaching: This level assumes the participant to be educators of interpreters. At this instructional level, the content of the CEU activity will focus on acquisition of current pedagogical techniques for the preparation of interpreters/transliterators.
