How does a provider calculate credit?

Question and Answer

How does a provider calculate credit?

The provider should submit the total number of minutes of actual instruction, exclusive of the introductory remarks, keynote speeches, breaks, meals, and any other segments that are not educational. That number of minutes will be divided by 50 to reach the correct number of total credits for the course. Any minutes related to ethics, professional responsibility and professionalism should be separated, as well as any minutes related to diversity, inclusion, and the elimination of bias (DIEB). For example, a course that is 200 minutes of total instruction, 50 minutes specifically for DIEB instruction and another 50 minutes in other ethics instruction, the course would be worth 4 credits, of which 2 credits qualify for ethics, including 1 credit of DIEB. If an attorney arrives late or leaves early, it is up to the provider to determine if the attorney receives partial credit.
