Fall Instructor Evaluator Workshop

The Fall Instructor Evaluator Workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, November 13, 2019, 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at MFRI Headquarters in College Park.  Enrollment is for MICRB-approved State Emergency Services Instructors who meet the following criteria:

  1.  Have been MICRB certified for at least one certification cycle (3 years) by the date of the workshop;
  2. Recommended and registered by Instructor's sponsoring agency.
To register, sponsoring agency should provide instructor's name, initial certification date, and instructor's email address, and email to khaje@mfri.org  Confirmations will be sent via email.


Reentry Policy     

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.
