New DUI Educational Program Requirements in Maryland

DUI Education - Bergand Group

In a recent letter to DUI education program providers, the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Administration and Office of Health Care Quality in Maryland clarified their position on the scheduling of DUI educational programs in the state.

The administrations noted that there currently exist DUI educational programs in the state that are offered over the course of one weekend, with 12 hours of education being provided in the two days of the weekend. From the ADAA:

The ADAA has interpreted this regulation historically as not permitting that all 12 hours of education may be provided within two days. Providing this course work over a six-week period increases information retention and greater understanding of the material being taught. Time and effort are required to learn new concepts, and information is best retained when reviewed and applied. This remains the ADAA’s interpretation of the regulation.

As such, the ADAA is going to propose and amendment that states that “weekend courses do not meet the requirements for a certified DUI education program.”
