We hope you will find this site useful in answering questions you

and encourage your feedback and suggestions. If you have any questions or
comments concerning the certification process, you can contact the Board's
administrative office at the University of Maryland by calling 301-226-9962 or

THE NEXT MEETING OF THE MICRB IS SCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2019. THE APPLICATION DEADLINE IS CLOSE OF BUSINESS WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2019.
The following instructors are due to recertify at that time:
regulations require that every two years, the Certification Standards and
Procedures for Emergency Service Instructors in the State of Maryland
(“Orange Book”) and certification authority shall be reviewed by the agencies
and organizations represented on the Maryland Instructor Certification Review
delegates and alternates appointed to represent these organizations on the
Board have spent a significant amount of time since the last review discussing
potential changes to the current version of COMAR.
Input from the constituency has been collected and the Board is currently addressing each submission. If any changes are deemed appropriate, the document will move forward to the Maryland Higher
Education Commission in preparation for the required public comment period.
Maryland Instructor Certification Review Board appreciates your active
participation and support of the instructor certification program and we look
forward to your comments.
At the July 11, 2018 meeting of the Maryland Instructor Certification Review Board, the Board unanimously approved a policy and procedures for permission to begin the reentry process. The purpose of the policy is to ensure that instructors whose certification has lapsed have approval from the MICRB to begin the reentry process. Instructors without approval from the MICRB to begin the reentry process are in violation of COMAR, and thus both the instructor and the sponsoring agency assume the associated liabilities. Instructors who have NOT been approved by the MICRB are prohibited from teaching or representing themselves as MICRB-certified State Emergency Services Instructors.
This policy is effective immediately. Any requests for reentry submitted for approval at the next meeting will NOT be accepted without the required documentation.
