Maryland HOSA Online Testing Competitions registration will open December 3, 2018 and registration is free! You must be a paid HOSA member in order to register and have a teacher or administrator to proctor the tests. The testing window will be January 14-25, 2019. Members may choose as many MDHOSA Online Tests as they can schedule in the two week testing window.  Consider registering for the Healthcare Issues Exam as this does not count as a competition but MDHOSA is entitled to send the top 2 competitors to the ILC.After the test results are processed, they will be emailed to your advisor.

Then members must choose ONE competitive event to compete in at the Spring Leadership Conference. If you do not qualify in an event with an online test qualifier, you may choose another event that does not have an OLT. Remember, the Recognition Events do not count as a competitive event and you may do any or all of them in addition to your competitive event.The following events will be available:
