http://ceusonthego.com/ -has a variety of webinars from different presenters including a favorite, Wendel "Wink" Smith
http://www.terplearn.com/ -Is a new website that has partnered with Virginia RID for CEUs that are accepted by both RID and Texas BEI. Some of the links are not up and running yet, but the Online Discussion Groups and the On Demand Webinars both are available for VERY reasonable prices ($30-$35ish). So far, they seem to focus on ETHICS, mentoring and NIC test prep.
http://www.deafactioncenter.org -Here is a link for the Deaf Action Center in Shreveport LA and scroll down to Current Events for an impressive list OR click on "Webcast Archives" to view what they have available On Demand. They are trying to do at least two new webcasts a month. All of the webcasts will remain on their website indefinitely and range around $35.00.
http://www.signs-of-development.org/ -"CD WWWorkshops," "Streaming WWWorkshops," "Weekend Web Workshops," and "Communities of Practice" are just a few of the "class styles"/categories you can earn CEUs through Signs of Development. Prices vary dependent on whether you are purchasing the CDs, Streaming, mentoring, and by the length of the class. They also have a "SWAP" program where you can share workshops you purchase and earn CEUs at about half the cost.
http://store.treehousevideo.com/index.php -has some phenomenal workshops for CEUs for purchase. Signs2go has already purchased several of these media products and they can be viewed here at Signs2go, in our Research & Professional Development Center (R&PDC). You can view them for free in our R&PDC, do the assignments and submit the work to Treehouse for a completion grade. Treehouse will process the RID CEUs for a proctoring/processing fee. One or two of those media programs are focused on Ethics. (Signs2go does not profit from these workshops.)
https://interpretersretreat.com/-has a variety of workshops offered via retreats or cruises on various dates throughout the year. Great for those who want to get away from the everyday learning environment!
The pdf. file below contains links to YouTube Webinars. These Webinars were created with grant money and are FREE to watch.
Signs2go has petitioned the BEI for CEUs and has been approved to proctor, process, and issue CEUs for the webinars on the following list. We will charge a set rate of $15.00 to proctor the webinar and process the CEUs. Please read all of the instructions, choose Option 1 or Option 2 of the proctored process, then follow that process to receive your CEU Certificate through Signs2go. Depending on the Option you chose, the proctor will collect the proctoring/processing fee and issue CEUs. Please allow 3 business days, after processing payment, for Option 2 certificates to be delivered via email attachment. This is a new process for us and we are still working out the kinks, but we hope this will be beneficial for all.
Each workshop on the list is set up with specific info to make it easy to determine which workshop you may want to do. For example:
79) Workshop Name- (We need you to include both the NUMBER and NAME of the workshop when you turn them in)

Several people have contacted me lately asking if certain CEUs are accepted by BEI or the RID, especially concerning the sites listed below. Each training site will post who is sponsoring the CEUs, the process required to get those CEUs, and the cost for those CEUs.
-RID CEUs are accepted by BEI
-BEI CEUs are accepted by RID (if you file a PINRA form in advance)
Here is the link to the DHHS BEI web site for CEU requirements that pretty well explains what is acceptable:
Here are links to a variety of internet training sites. Please make sure the site you choose is still hosting the CEUs before you do the program. I just post the links I find. I can't control how long they are viable. The webinars that Signs2go are hosting are listed in the pdf. located below in the border about the middle of the page.
