Where attendance is the method for determining satisfactory course completion, the sponsor is responsible to do the following:
- Designate a person other than the seminar leader to monitor the entire program. Seminar leader may be the monitor for 15 or fewer attendees.
- Assure attendance criteria are adhered to and advise all attendees of the criteria prior to the commencement of the program. Seminar sponsor may advise attendees of seminar attendance criteria by giving them a copy prior to the seminar.
- Assure that attendees sign in prior to the seminar commencement. Seminar attendees who arrive more than 10 minutes late will not be given credit for the program.
- Assure that attendees sign out at the conclusion of the program. Seminar attendees who leave prior to the conclusion of the program will not be given credit.
- Seminars which are two to four hours in duration will have a minimum of one random pass-around sign-in sheet. Seminars of four hours or more in duration will have a minimum of two random pass-around sign-in sheets. Seminar attendees who are not present in the room when the random sign-in sheets are passed around will not be given credit for the program.
- The above mentioned criteria apply each day to seminars or programs that extend over two or more days.
The purpose of the above mentioned criteria is to help ensure attendance and attention at seminars or meetings which grant satisfactory completion by attendance. The seminar 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.
