MD Licensing Course

For anyone out there who still needs to take the full classroom course to meet the new Maryland HI licensing requirements, Frederick Community College (central MD) has a class starting on 9/11 and running till 11/15 on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 6-9 pm. The cost of the class is only $789, about half of what most of the HI schools are charging for the same course, and you don’t have to do it all in one week. As of today there were still 15 slots available in the class.

Following is the e-mail I received from Dr. Richard Ammon who is in charge of the course. You can also e-mail me at if you want more details.
