    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. Google Translate may maintain unique privacy and use policies. These policies are not controlled by DoIT and are not associated with DoIT’s privacy and use policies. 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. Google Translate is a third-party service and site users will be leaving DoIT to utilize translated content. As such, DoIT does not guarantee and does not accept responsibility for, the accuracy, reliability, or performance of this service nor the limitations provided by this service, such as the inability to translate specific files like PDFs and graphics (e.g. .jpgs, .gifs, etc.).

    DoIT provides Google Translate as an online tool for its users, but DoIT does not directly endorse the website or imply that it is the only solution available to users. All site visitors may choose to use alternate tools for their translation needs. Any individuals or parties that use DoIT content in translated form, whether by Google Translate or by any other translation services, do so at their own risk. DoIT is not liable for any loss or damages arising out of, or issues related to, the use of or reliance on translated content. DoIT assumes no liability for any site visitor’s activities in connection with use of the Google Translate functionality or content.

    The Google Translate service is a means by which DoIT offers translations of content and is meant solely for the convenience of non-English speaking users of the website. The translated content is provided directly and dynamically by Google; DoIT has no direct control over the translated content as it appears using this tool.

    Orientation Training

    All Maryland Responders must complete the Maryland Responds Orientation training to satisfy the core training requirement to reach Ready Responder Status and to be eligible for deployments.
    The Maryland Responds MRC Online Orientation Version 2.0 is available online! The revised Online Orientation training incorporates an introduction to the National Incident Management System and the Incident Command System with an overview of the Maryland Responds MRC deployment protocols. As with the previous version, the revised online orientation training is a condensed version of the in-class orientation training, intended to provide you with the basic, yet vital, information you need to prepare for your role as a Maryland Responder.
    For those who took a previous version of the orientation training (online or in-class), we highly recommend that you take the revised version of the course as it contains several updates and new material.
    To take the Maryland Responds MRC Online Orientation Version 2.0, log on to the Maryland Responds Online Training Site (or create an account if you haven’t already): http://mdresponds.myicourse.com/. For additional instructions, click HERE.
    In-class offerings are announced as they become available. Registered Maryland Responders receive training announcements through the Registry and via email. We also post training announcements on the News & Events page of our website.
