Many of you have incurred an address fine. If your 2013/2014 newsletter or renewal notice is returned to the board, you have an address
flag on the database. You will not be issued a license until you have paid the $100 fine. No exceptions.
Licenses are renewed biennially on an odd-even basis via on-line system. License numbers ending with an odd-number renew in odd-numbered years. License numbers ending with an even number renew in even-numbered years. Renewals begin on March 17 for the 2014 renewal. Letters with instructions are being sent out the 1st week in March. The instructions will also be available here when the link is up. The Board must receive your online renewal by May 16th to ensure that your license is mailed back to you before May 31st. Failure to renew your license prior to its expiration date will result in loss of licensure and the right to practice physical therapy/limited physical therapy in Maryland.
Licensee must have earned the 3.0 CEUs for a PT, or 2.0 CEUs for a PTA.
1CEU = 10 CE hours (0.1 CEU = 1 CEU hour)
CEUs will not be required if your license was issued one year or less before the renewal period.
Do you have questions about ceu requirements? CEU regulations are online - click on Laws and Regulations. Click on Code of Maryland. Chapter 8,(03) Continuing Education Requirements. See (05) for Renewal Requirements. All your questions can be answered by simply reviewing the regulations.
If you fail to renew your license by its expiration date, you may be eligible for reinstatement but only by meeting all requirements.
