*Note: After you click submit at the end of application, you will have an opportunity to pay online or pay later. If paying later, you need to submit payment immediately via mail following submission of online application. For mail payments, We only accept money orders, cashier’s checks, personal check, payable to “Arizona Commission for the Deaf and the Hard of Hearing (ACDHH)” or cash (in person). 

Credit Cards issued by a foreign bank or entity are not an acceptable form of payment due to the system’s inability to confirm security measures. As an alternative, please use a secured or prepaid Credit Card issued by a US entity or bank.  

Make sure your application is complete, filling each field, each box checked off and submit supporting documentations. Any fields or supporting documents can delay your application process. Please read the application carefully. Thank you.

ATTENTION: Continuing Education Hours or CEUs to submit with your renewal

  • You must show proof that you have met the CEU requirements of your certification when your certification cycle renews. For example, if your RID Certification Cycle ends on 12/31/2017, you will need to show proof that you completed your CEU requirements when you renew your license in 2018.  Additional note: You do not need to submit proof of CEUs annually unless your CEU cycle renews annually, as is the case with some BEI Certifications. Note that your annual membership renewal is distinct from your Certification Cycle Renewal.
  • For Provisional Interpreters: You must submit proof of 12 hours of Continuing Education annually upon renewal. You may submit Certificates of Completion or CEU transcript for workshops attended, or college transcripts for qualifying courses taken relevant to the practice of interpreting.
