CEU Requirements (January 2018 to June 2019) – Important Note for Spoken Language Interpreters

If you have already met the CEU requirements for the cycle ending in December of 2017, you are in good standing with the State of New Mexico. You will be issued a new identification badge valid from January 2018 through June 2019. As you will see, the badge will expire on June 30 of 2019: a cycle of eighteen (18) months. This one-time shortened cycle is necessary in order to bring the CEU cycle into alignment with the fiscal year.

Per the Continuing Education Requirement: “In addition to membership in a professional association each person shall also complete twenty (20) hours of AOC-approved professional education, including at least two (2) hours of ethics related training, every two (2) year cycle.” AOC will pro rate the requirement during the one-time eighteen (18) month cycle, meaning that between January 2018 and June 2019, only fifteen (15) hours of continuing education will be required.

o   To receive a new badge, please mail in a cashier’s check or money order of $15.00 payable to NMAOC.

If you have not yet met your CEU requirements for the cycle ending in December of 2017 yet, you must submit proof of CEUs.  AOC will then issue a new badge upon meeting all CEU requirements. This badge will be valid from January 2018 - June 2019: a cycle of eighteen (18) months. This one-time shortened cycle is necessary in order to bring the CEU cycle into alignment with the fiscal year.

Links to the CEU spreadsheets can be found at the bottom of this page.
