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:

  • 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.
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)
