Review the EIPA Written Test Procedures and FAQ on the Classroom Interpreting website
For more information, contact Chris Grassmeyer, EIPA Written Test Coordinator by email: Christine.Grassmeyer@boystown.org or phone: (402) 452-5039.

Please Note:  It is not required to take the Written portion of the EIPA before the Performance portion.  Also the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) Code of Ethics is not the basis for the professional conduct of the EIPA Written Test.

The EIPA Written Test is based on a set of knowledge standards that was developed by a group of experts, including deaf consumers, interpreters, interpreter trainers, deaf educators, and ASL linguistics. The test is not a factual memory test. In other words, memorization of the knowledge standards only, may not enable you to receive a passing score. Application of knowledge to situations is necessary in order to pass this examination. The test is also based on the EIPA Guidelines for Professional Conduct.
