How is a course defined?
A course is a live activity where the learner participates in person. A course is planned as an individual event. Examples: an annual meeting, conference, or seminar.
For events with multiple sessions, such as annual meetings, accredited providers report one activity and calculate the hours of instruction by totaling the hours of all educational sessions offered for credit. Accredited providers are not required to calculate learner totals from the individual sessions.
To calculate the numbers of learners, accredited providers report the number of learners for the overall event.
If the same course is held multiple times for different audiences, then each instance is reported as a separate activity.
