Where attendance is the method for determining satisfactory course completion (classroom presentations), the provider is required to do the following

For physical classroom courses:

  1. Designate a person, other than the instructor, to monitor the entire class. Instructor may be the monitor for 15 or fewer attendees.
  2. Assure attendance criteria are adhered to and advise all attendees of the criteria prior to the commencement of the class. Providers may advise attendees of the course of the attendance criteria by giving them a copy prior to the class.
  3. Assure that attendees sign in prior to the class commencement. Course attendees who arrive more than 10 minutes late will not be given credit for the class.
  4. Assure that attendees sign out at the conclusion of the class. Course attendees who leave prior to the conclusion of the class will not be given credit.
  5. Courses which are two to four hours in duration will have a minimum of one random pass-around sign-in sheet. Attendees who are not present in the room when the random sign-in sheets are passed around will not be given credit for the class.
  6. Courses of four hours or more in duration will have a minimum of two random pass-around sign-in sheets. Attendees who are not present in the room when the random sign-in sheets are passed around will not be given credit for the class.
  7. The above mentioned criteria apply each day to courses that extend over two or more days.

For ‘virtual’ classroom courses:

  1. Designate a person, other than the instructor, to monitor the entire class. Instructor may be the monitor for 15 or fewer attendees.
  2. Assure attendance criteria are adhered to and advise all attendees of the criteria prior to the commencement of the class. Providers may advise attendees of the course of the attendance criteria by giving them a copy prior to the class.
  3. Assure that attendees sign in prior to the class commencement. Course attendees who arrive more than 10 minutes late will not be given credit for the class.
  4. Assure that attendees sign out at the conclusion of the class. Course attendees who leave prior to the conclusion of the class will not be given credit.Student attendance is based on personally-identifable information, such as username, password, email, government-issued identification, electronic signature.
  5. Attendance is monitored via student participation or interaction with course activities. This can be accomplished via regular polling questions; periodic activities where required interaction is specifically monitored for each attendee, etc.

The purpose of the above mentioned criteria is to help ensure attendance and attention at course sessions which grant satisfactory completion by attendance. The monitor has the authority to withhold course credit from any attendee who does not give satisfactory attention. Failure to comply with these requirements will result in loss of certification in accordance with Section 023 of Idaho Department of Insurance Regulation No. 53.
