Interpreter Certification

The Department of Human Services implemented interpreter certification policies and procedures. Along with South Dakota Certification level III, IV, and V, South Dakota recognizes national certification (RID & NAD), EIPA (Educational Interpreter Proficiency Assessment) with a score of 3.5 or higher, and will be issuing provisional certification for graduates of an accredited IT (Interpreter Training) Program. All certifications require initial and annual registration. All interpreter certification testing must be taken through the national organization (RID) or through EIPA.
