about the training institute

Baltimore Washington Counseling Center proudly opened the Training Institute in 2014 to offer specialized continuing education training to professionals in the community. Workshops at BWCC allow for learning to occur in a supportive, encouraging environment. Presenters have discussed a variety of topics including specific diagnoses, treatment modalities and other important topics for professionals.

The Training Institute at Baltimore Washington Counseling Center is authorized by the Board of Social Work Examiners in Maryland to sponsor Social Work Continuing Education Programs. Workshops held by BWCC qualify for Category I Continuing Education Units to all mental health professionals and practitioners where it is deemed medically appropriate. If you are unsure if this training qualifies for Continuing Education Credits for your professional, please contact your local board.

The Training Institute has the right to cancel any workshop due to insufficient registration, inclement weather, presenter's illness or problems at the training site at any given time. Registrants will be notified as soon as possible and will have the option of either receiving a full refund of applying whatever fees they have already paid to any future training of their choice. A refund will be issued if a payment had been received. In addition, all registrants will be given a $25.00 discount off a training of their choice to compensate for the inconvenience the cancellation has caused. 

Registrants who cancel with at least seven days notice will be issued a full refund via the method of original payment. The Training Institute will use discretion in determining refund status for registrants who cancel with less than seven days notice.

To send cancellation notice or for other questions regarding trainings, please contact traininginstitute@bwcc-counseling.com or call 410.768.6088, ext 125.
