Are the eLearning courses eligible for MCLE credit?

Follow

Emtrain is California MCLE Approved Provider #13153, authorized by MCLE to grant either 1 hour credit or 2 hour credit depending on the length of the course you’re taking.

Preventing Harassment training courses are eligible for MCLE credit only in California, New Mexico, and New York:

California — we can provide credit for all our courses. Other than the 2-Hour Preventing Harassment course, other qualifying activities are available for one hour of general credit. More information on qualifying activities can be found Here on the California State Bar website.
 
New Mexico — we can only provide credit for the 2-hour Preventing Workplace Harassment course.
 
New York — Under New York’s Approved Jurisdiction policy, so long as certain requirements are satisfied, New York attorneys may count towards their New York CLE requirement credit earned through participation in out-of-state courses accredited by a New York Approved Jurisdiction. The policy applies to both traditional live classroom-format and nontraditional-format courses (online, DVD, teleconference, etc.). Traditional live classroom-format courses are out-of-state if they take place outside of New York State. Nontraditional-format courses are out-of-state if the sponsor organization is headquartered outside of New York State.

Group “B” (jurisdictions that do not require written materials for every CLE course):

California (This jurisdiction requires written materials only for courses that are more than 60 minutes in length.)

An attorney claiming credit for an out-of-state course must retain the following documentation for a period of at least four (4) years:

  • Proof of attendance from the course sponsor: You can print this from your Emtrain Training Portal under the Certificates tab. Total eligible New York CLE Law Practice Management credit hours: 2 hours
  • Proof of Accreditation by at least one of the New York Approved Jurisdictions listed above: https://members.calbar.ca.gov/search/cert_detail.aspx?PID=13153&SpecCode=
  • Proof that written course materials were made available: For courses accredited by California that are more than 60 minutes in length, the attorney need not retain written materials, as California’s CLE regulations require written materials for these courses.
  • Proof that the faculty included at least one attorney in good standing: A faculty/course author bio can be found Here
  • For nontraditional-format courses (online, DVD, teleconference, etc.), proof of acceptable attendance verification: Emtrain's Learning Management System (LMS) verifies active participation in the course via assessments, and system activity records.
