With the world growing at a rapid pace, professionals are expected to stay updated with all the developments. It has become an absolute requirement in order to keep up with the current flow and provide the highest quality of service to your clients. The state of Maryland has understood this requirement and has made continuing education (CE) mandatory for all licensed professionals.
Continuing education is something that has been established keeping in mind the guidelines of IACET (International Association for Continuing Education & Training) and the ANSI (American National Standards Institute). While each state has a different set of rules, the underlying idea remains the same—for every professional to re-equip themselves and provide the best possible care.
This is where we come in. We at Core Wellness offer well-researched high-quality CE programs for psychologists. Our CE courses have been approved by the Board of Professional Counselors and the Board of Psychologists of Maryland. Every practicing psychologist in the state of Maryland must maintain a record of Maryland psychology CEUs to renew their license. A CEU is a continuing education unit. One unit usually involves 10 contact hours. You, as a practicing psychologist, is expected to have 40 CE hours within your renewal period.
Maryland psychology CEUs can include topics that are directly related to your field of practice, whether it is trauma, child psychology or another related subject. It can also have multidisciplinary leanings, borrowing topics from medicine or sociology. The state also dictates that you must take 3 CEUs in practice-related laws, ethics and conduct. You are also expected to complete a minimum of 3 CE hours on providing your services to culturally diverse populations.
