Changes in categories of Communication Professional with NRCPD

The National Registers of Communication Professionals working with Deaf and Deafblind people (NRCPD) have announced that they are changing the structure of the registration categories for Communication Professionals that work with Deaf people, as a result of the Setting the Standard consultation.

NRCPD said "Our goal is to provide an easy to understand category structure with consistent standards and policies, so we will provide:

- One Registered category for individuals who have met the agreed safe to practice standards and in each of the six professions we regulate; and

- One Trainee category in each of these professions"


This is a positive decision and will hopefully de-mystify the registration categories for the Deaf community.

terptree recommend that Deaf people and interpreter service users ask to see the Communication Professional's ID (yellow card) to ensure that the individual is registered with NRCPD.

These ID cards will be replaced when the Communication Professional renews their registration with NRCPD, so until this time, you will see the following current categories:

Junior Trainee Interpreter
Trainee Interpreter (TI)
Member of the Register of Sign Language Interpreters (MRSLI)
