Georgia Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf




Follow the steps below and fill out the PINRA form.  Attach any required documentation.

GaRID kindly requests this information at least 10 days prior to the activity.


Choose the activity/conference you want to attend. The activity/conference does not have to pertain strictly to interpreting. It can be a regional or national conference of another profession or could be a formal in-service training by an employer. As long as the activity is educationally beneficial to you as an interpreter, it can earn CEUs for you!


Identify the Content Area for which you are applying (Professional Studies or General Studies) in the appropriate field in the form below.  If you don't know, choose "unsure" and GaRID CMP will review the information and make a determination.  Understand how many CEUs will be earned (1 CEU = 10 contact hours).  Contact if you have any questions.


Complete the online PINRA request form below.  Attach pertinent documentation such as an agenda or program book. Submit the form with documentation.  GaRID CMP will keep the form until your activity is completed. This form must be submitted to GaRID before the activity begins.  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 PINRA approval.
