In-person Workshop Policies


1. How do I know where the workshop is located?

All of our workshops are accompanies by a number (excluding some specials). That number is accompanied by a letter that represents the workshop’s location. These letters are as follows: SG for Shady Grove Campus, HC for Howard County, DC for the District of Columbia, and W for Live Interactive Webinars (click here to learn about our webinar policies).

If there are NO letters behind the number, that means that the workshop is held at the Baltimore campus. The location is also listed on the website and after the workshop description in the Bloom Catalog.


2. Is parking available?

Yes. Parking is available at all of our locations. Below are some options for parking at each of our locations.


3. What if I want a hard copy of the handouts and do not have access to a printer?

You can purchase printed copies of the workshop materials for $5.00 at the Baltimore location. If you registered for a workshop at one of the satellite locations (Howard County, Shady Grove, DC, etc.) please request copies of the workshop materials at least two weeks before your workshop by calling us at 410.706.1839. There are no printing options at the satellite locations.


4. What happens if I’m running late for an in-person workshop?

Take a deep breath and get to the destination safely. You do not need to call us. You are officially late if you arrive after the start time of the workshop. As soon as you arrive, sign in with the workshop’s liaison – do not wait. Your CE certificate will be adjusted in ½ an hour increments.

This only applies to workshops approved by BSWE. If you arrive late to workshops approved by ASWB, CE credits will not be given or adjusted for those that arrive late.


5. What happens if I need to leave early from or have an emergency during an in-person workshop?

If you need to leave early, please tell the workshop liaison and/or CPE staff. Please do not tell the workshop instructor.

CE credits will be adjusted for participants who neglect to receive their CE certificate at the end of the workshop, and neglected to inform the liaison of their departure, your CE certificate will be adjusted in ½ an hour increments.

This only applies to workshops approved by BSWE. If you leave early from a workshop approved by ASWB, CE credits will not be given, nor will they be adjusted.


6. How do I receive my CE certificate?

CE certificates will be made available to all participants that sign in and out of each workshop and complete the evaluation found in their registration profile.

Failure to perform all three steps may result in a participant’s inability to receive CE credit.


7. What if I have a complaint/grievance?

The Office of Continuing Professional Education works hard to offer innovative workshops. We also take all complaints seriously. If you have a complaint, please contact our office IMMEDIATELY.

Refunds or Credit Letters will not be issued for fully attended workshops.Please see our Grievance Policy HERE.


8. Do we offer ADA Accommodations?

We do! If you are requesting ADA accommodations, please contact us via email at least two weeks prior to the course date. Requests after that date may not be fulfilled.
