Q:    If an attorney watches a recorded version of a ‘live’ training session, is this subject to the 5-hour cap?

A:     Yes, this eventuality falls under the cap. As referenced in the policy memorandum, the ability to participate is the deciding factor on whether the course is subject to the limit or not:

"Subject to the 5-hour cap: Video and/or audio presentations that are presented on or via any media but do not allow for learner participation, otherwise called ‘asynchronous learning’. This is similar to sitting and reading a textbook or similar instructional material without benefit of instructor direction and/or class interaction."

Q:    If an attorney watches a ‘live’ training session via the internet or some other virtual classroom/presentation method, are these hours subject to the 5-hour cap?

A:    No, they are not subject to the cap. As referenced in the policy memorandum:

“Not subject to the 5-hour cap: Virtual classroom/presentation where the presenter and audience members can see and/or hear each other and interact in ‘real time’. Except for the remote delivery method, these sessions are functionally similar to sitting in a classroom and having the benefit of instructor direction and/or class interaction.”

Q:    What does “interact” mean in regards to the 5-hour cap?

A:    For the purposes of this memorandum, “interact” is considered to encompass any method of communicating, including but not limited to: audio via a video connect; audio via a muted video connection; audio via phone; text via email; and text via a chat feature. Questions or comments submitted and relayed to the present via a moderator or other intermediary are also acceptable.
