Two Options to Register
Implicit Bias Training is Required for New Licensees and License Renewal
Currently, the only approved implicit bias training course specifically for SLPs that earns continuing education (CE) hours for licensure renewal is the MSHA Examining Implicit Bias and Culturally-Sustaining SLP Practices. This is for one contact hours (.1 CEUs).
Speakers: Christina Royster, EdD, CCC-SLP and Courtney Overton, MS, CCC-SLP
Registration for On Demand will be available after October 21, 2022
Enacted under Article II, § 17(c) of the Maryland Constitution, May 30, 2021
The law requires all health care practitioners in Maryland to attest that they have completed an implicit bias training program on their license renewal application.
What does this mean for you?
When you complete your 2022 license renewal application, you will need to have completed one of the implicit bias training courses approved by the Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities.
At the time of your license renewal, you will attest to the completion of the training by checking the appropriate box in your renewal application. You are only required to attest to the completion of the training once. You will not need to repeat this attestation during subsequent renewals.
For courses that do not produce a certificate of completion
The Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities has recommended that in the absence of a certificate of completion from one of the State-approved courses posted on our website you keep your proof of registration in the course or take a screenshot of the final completion screen in the event a situation arises that calls for verification of completion.
