Utah Interpreter Program
The Utah Interpreter Program (UIP) is a program within the Division of Services for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. UIP is responsible for certifying and regulating American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters for the state of Utah. Utah law requires interpreters be certified to work in the state. UIP maintains an Interpreter Directory of all certified interpreters who are authorized to work. UIP is not an interpreter agency, and does not hire out interpreters. More information about hiring an interpreter can found in the Interpreter Directory.
UIP offers state certification examinations, and recognizes national certifications issued by RID, NAD and EIPA. For information on state certification testing, go to Certification Process. For interpreters with a national certification, go to Apply for Renewal/Recognition.
