27 Mar Online CEs Accepted for RVT & Vet Renewals
In light of the State’s COVID-19response and the Governor’s call for social distancing, the Maryland State Board has voted to allow Registered Veterinary Technicians (RVTs) to meet all of their CE requirements with online courses when renewing their license registration for FY 2021 only. Normally, only 8 of the 24 CEs required during the three previous years may be done online. This requirement is being waived for FY21 license registration renewals only.
The Board previously voted to allow veterinarians to meet all of their CE requirements with online courses when renewing their veterinary license registration for FY 2021. Normally, at least 9 of the 18 required CEs must done in person. This requirement is being waived for FY21 license registration renewals only.
The Governor’s Executive Order requires any occupational and professional license that expires during the current State of Emergency to be automatically extended until 30 days after the State of Emergency has been lifted. We, of course, don’t know when that will be. However, for your convenience, license registrations will open for renewal on June 1 even if the State of Emergency remains in effect and the deadline extended.
