Please note: states marked with an asterisk (*) require courses to be taken with instructor evaluation in order for CEUs to be awarded.
California: accepts any other state’s CE hours.
Idaho: An individual interpreter is free to take an online course and ask for approval directly from Idaho Judicial Branch: firstname.lastname@example.org
Maryland (Please note that ASL interpreters are not required to submit CEUs.)
Minnesota: At this time Minnesota does not require continuing education for interpreters.
North Carolina: NC follows Wisconsin’s CE credit structure for IEO courses (see below).
Oklahoma: LEO courses are approved for continuing education credit in Oklahoma. Oklahoma credits are based on a 50-minute hour. Interpreters receive 1 hour of CE credit for each 50 minutes of instruction, i.e. for the course with 12 hours of instruction, the interpreter would actually receive 14.4 hours of CE credit.
American Translators Association: Any ATA members who takes online courses would have to claim an on-demand course as self study on their CEP form and submit a self-study form.
