What are NCBTMB’s guidelines for Live Courses and/or Distance Learning?
Live courses are defined as synchronous learning experiences during which participants are in the presence of an instructor whether in the same or in a remote location.
Distance Learning is defined as courses that are held in a distant location but there is direct communication during the course between the instructor and participants. Communication between the instructor and participants may be by phone, interactive webinar or website. All of the criteria for live courses is replicated in webinars.
If a webinar is recorded and offered as a home study a test must be created to and adherence to home study criteria must be followed.
