The next renewal period will begin in May 2015. Instructions will be mailed during the month of April. In order to be eligible for licensure renewal, you must have earned 12 contact hours between January 1 and December 31 of the previous year. The 12 contact hours shall consist of a minimum of 8 contact hours related to occupational therapy principles and procedures and a maximum of 4 contact hours through occupational therapy role-related activities, as defined in COMAR 10.46.04.02.
Those individuals who were originally licensed after July 1st do not need any hours for the first renewal period. In lieu of the 12 contact hours, the board also recognizes the maintenance of current NBCOT certification as fulfilling the requirements of continuing competency.
