Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing

Michael Vorgetts,
Acting Commissioner

Working in concert with 23 licensing boards, commissions and programs appointed by the Governor, the Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (O&P) is responsible for licensing and regulating the activities of over 210,000 individuals, corporations and partnerships. 

Twenty-four occupations and professions are covered ranging from the 61 bay pilots who navigate large commercial vessels on the Chesapeake Bay, to the more than 45,000 real estate professionals who handle real estate transactions in the State of Maryland.   O&P's mission is to protect the public by assuring that our licensees have met a standard of competence in their chosen profession and by responding to consumer complaints against incompetent or unscrupulous practitioners.
