The News Cover: All disability-related courses (Hearing Impairment / Visual Impairment VI / Learning Disability etc.) are managed by Rehabilitation Council of India (RCI), New Delhi. There are many courses like - D.Ed., B.Ed., M.Ed in HI, VI or LD. There is DTISL - Deaf teacher training course and even Interpreter course. After doing these courses, the professional is registered with RCI and given a Central Rehabilitation Register (CRR) number. After which you are permitted to teach. As per RCI Act, 1992 - RCI registration is mandatory, otherwise there can be punishment / fine. You all must be knowing that in deaf schools across the country, most teachers are hearing. Why? This is because many deaf people do not know how to apply and get qualifications to become a RCI certified teacher of deaf. I will tell you. 

You can become RCI certified teacher of deaf in two ways - For a deaf individual to called a teacher of the deaf, need to complete one of the two RCI approved course. DTISL is a two year Diploma in Teaching ISL. After completion of the course, you become a certified teacher. DTISL course is currently being offered in three institutes in the country : 1. ISLRTC, New Delhi 2. IDBA, Indore 3. HWSPSHI, Panchkula, Haryana As an ISL Teacher, you can get a job to teach interpreters or to teach deaf students in deaf schools. PM Modi announced ISL as a language subject, schools all over the country will now start teaching ISL for which there will be a demand for deaf teachers. Deaf can study this course and become teachers. So go ahead and apply. 2. If you are interested in teaching various subjects like maths, English, science, etc, then you need to complete a D.Ed. in Special Education (Hearing Impairment) There are many training institutes in the country which offer D.Ed. in Spl. Ed. (H.I.). However only hearing people apply as there is no accessibility. 

Last year for the first time, in Haryana 25 deaf and 5 hearing people - a total of 30 people applied in a D.Ed. (H.I.) batch. Teachers knew ISL and interpreters were there for classes where teachers did not know sign language. After completing D.Ed. in Spl. Ed. (H.I.) one can apply for jobs in deaf schools as teachers from Nursery till Class VIII. Both courses- DTISL and D.ED / B. Ed (HI) are important. DTISL helps to you train deaf as well as hearing interpreters. Whereas B. Ed, D. Ed (HI) helps you to teach subjects such as Science, Maths, English, etc. 

as bilingual teachers. The good news, RCI has announced the admission process for 2021, Deaf who are interested can apply for the teacher training courses. You need to be 12th pass to apply for these courses. The cut-off for D.Ed. courses is 50 % in 12th and the cut off for DTISL course is 45 %. The admission will start from 31st August and will be till 30 September 2021. All the information about the course is available on the RCI website.
