What are a provider’s responsibilities after accrediting a course?
Supreme Court Rule(s) cited in this FAQ: Rule 796
Even though the Board is collecting individual attorney attendance information from providers, Illinois remains an attorney self-reporting state. Attorneys maintain their own records and rely solely on attendance and/or teaching certificates from the provider to document attendance when reporting their compliance to the Board. In audits, the Board will also ask providers for course attendance records.
For these reasons, a provider must complete each of these tasks during the course or soon after it ends:
It is the provider’s responsibility to address questions about any of these matters by contacting the Board or consulting the Board’s website. Rule 796(f)(1)
- Enter attendance into PCAM and pay any resulting attendance fees promptly.
- Issue attendance and/or teaching certificates, based on actual participation.
- Maintain a list of course participant names for at least three years after the course ends.
- Respond promptly to requests from the Board for information about the course, attendance data, and attendees.
- Distribute and collect evaluation forms and retain them for at least three years.
