Distance Learning

The PACLE Board has modified the process of becoming an Accredited Distance Learning Provider. In recognition of consistent technologies utilized by course providers to meet interactivity standards, the application process has been streamlined to facilitate approval of course providers. Providers may receive conditional approval as an Accredited Distance Learning Provider upon the review and approval of one (1) program that meets the Board's standards for accreditation. Providers must apply for approval of four (4) additional programs to receive full accreditation and meet all other requirements of the Board. Programs submitted for review in the accreditation process may receive CLE approval. Providers are responsible for filing attendance reports with the CLE Board. Please refer to Information for Providers

Due to COVID-19, attorneys may complete all 12 of the 2020 CLE requirement through participation in approved online programs. Credits must be completed through programs conducted by Accredited Distance Learning Providers (see below). Please refer to the Distance Learning FAQ for more important information.

UPDATE: Distance Learning 2021 Policy Change

Effective January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021 the CLE Board is adopting a temporary policy to recognize live online programming by accredited distance learning providers as live (non-capped) credit towards lawyers' CLE requirement. This will acknowledge the engagement and real-time learning experience synchronous training provides while extending compliance accommodations for attorneys.
