Fingerprinting during COVID: As indicated in a recent Board bulletin regarding license renewal, under an Executive Order a license will not expire during the state of emergency. The license will expire 30 days after the state of emergency is lifted. The criminal history records check (CHRC) is required to complete the renewal process. Please note that a CHRC is only required if it has been 6 or more years since your last report. The date of your last CHRC may be found on the Board’s website under “License verification”.
Many of the fingerprinting sites are by appointment only and are taking the required safety precautions. In accordance with §§17-501 and 17-501.1 of the Health Occupations Article, Annotated Code of Maryland, all applicants must complete a criminal history background check upon renewal.
