Certification Moratorium

On August 8, 2015, the RID Board of Directors announced that RID will be placing a moratorium on credentialing pending the results of the Risk Analysis of the certification program.  

The current timeline is as follows:
October 1, 2015: RID stops taking new registrations for the NIC, CDI, OTC and SC:L Performance Exams.
December 31, 2015: RID stops accepting CLIP-R Applications.
January 1, 2016: RID stops offering performance exams.
July 1, 2016: RID stops accepting Ed:K-12 Applications.

A timeline for lifting of the moratorium will be determined by the RID Board of Directors after the completion of the Risk Assessment, which is scheduled to be delivered to the Board by November 1, 2015. The outcome of that assessment will determine if, when, and how each exam will come back online.
