  • The credential renewal fee and application.
  • Documentation of the appropriate number of Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
  • Information necessary to conduct a criminal history check.

In addition to the renewal requirements above, the ASL Oregon Certified Court Interpreter must submit documentation of completion of the following:

  • Verification of a valid Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf Specialist Certificate: Legal (SC:L).
  • 120 hours of interpreting services in courts of record in Oregon or Consortium member states, federal courts of record, or where the interpreter is sworn in and the record can be presented into evidence.
  • Five ethics-specific CEUs during the renewal period
