    The Maryland Department of Information Technology (“DoIT”) offers translations of the content through Google Translate. Because Google Translate is an external website, DoIT does not control the quality or accuracy of translated content. All DoIT content is filtered through Google Translate which may result in unexpected and unpredictable degradation of portions of text, images and the general appearance on translated pages.

After selecting a translation option, users will be notified that they are leaving DoIT’s website. Users should consult the original English content on DoIT’s website if there are any questions about the translated content.

    DoIT uses Google Translate to provide language translations of its content. Google Translate is a free, automated service that relies on data and technology to provide its translations. The Google Translate feature is provided for informational purposes only. Translations cannot be guaranteed as exact or without the inclusion of incorrect or inappropriate language.

    Email sent out to Board Authorized Sponsors titled "2020 BSWE Newsletter" on January 19, 2021

    As the Board reviews Continuing Education Certificates issued by Board Authorized Sponsors (BAS), it has found that some of the BAS are not using the Continuing Education (CE) template located on the CE webpage. Please update your current CE Certificate to reflect this format and print on your official letterhead.

    For a webinar to qualify as a Category I CE learning activity it must be live, real-time, and interactive and it must be specified on the certificate.

    It has come to the Board’s attention that some CE providers are offering webinars with pre-recorded session(s)/presentation(s) and calling them “Live and Interactive.” If more than 10% of the total training hours are pre-recorded, this is not considered “Live and Interactive” and the entire training would be classified as Category II. In order to offer Category I training, it must be live and interactive in real-time for the entire training. The modes of training must be clearly stated in your announcements, brochures, and postings.

    Please check the Board’s website periodically to keep up-to-date on information pertaining to license renewal and continuing education requirements.

    In addition, if you are providing Ethics or Supervision training programs, the specific training must be listed on the CE Certificate by the title of the training, the number of credit units earned, and whether it is a Category I or Category II learning activity.
