Renewal Information for 2020

Things are a bit different in Maryland this year.

We are required to renew by October 31, 2020, or 30 days after the state of emergency declared by Governor Hogan is lifted. The MBMTE is moving forward with opening online renewal late this summer and will extend it if necessary due to the state of emergency.

You only need your 7 required CEs plus CPR to renew in 2020.

The 17 elective CEs are waived.

That is: 3 hours of Ethics and Jurisprudence, 3 hours of Communicable Disease, and 1 hour of Cultural Diversity.

As stated above, we will ask our members to add their CE recommendations to our Facebook page - head on over to for some ideas or share a recommendation.

You can find quite a few CE classes online through AMTA's National Website: many of them are free at the moment.

Carry-Over of the 17 Elective CEs
At the recommendation of the Licensing Committee the Board voted not to carry-over the 17CEs that some of us have earned to the 2022 renewal period AT THIS TIME.

They made this choice to allow the Board in place at that time to make the decision and allow them to take appropriate actions for the 2022 renewal. Given the pandemic situation and how unknown the next couple of years will be, they felt it was more prudent to wait on such action.

AMTA-MD assures our members that we will circle back to this question in 2022.
