In order to maintain your Registered Professional Educational Diagnostician status, registration must be continuous. A lapse of time in paying the registration fee means that the individual is NOT a Registered Professional Educational Diagnostician during the lapse. It is prohibited to use the Registry number in any way unless Registration is current. Bylaws Section 9, Prohibited Acts, states:
“A person may not hold himself or herself out as a Registered Professional Educational Diagnostician unless the person has a current Certificate issued under these Bylaws.”
PROFESSIONAL = an RPED who is serving as an educational diagnostician which includes testing and report writing.
ASSOCIATE = an RPED who is in a position other than educational diagnostician or has retired.
Please contact Debra Hawkins at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need further clarification on Professional/Associate status, RPED number or fees owed.
