In their memo, the ASC reminds States that the 2020 Compliance Reviews have been postponed and that States have flexibility around deadlines when files are properly documented due to COVID-19 issues.
The memo also reiterates the AQB's decision to allow classroom continuing education courses (NOT qualifying education courses) to be delivered synchronously if the following four items are all met:
1) The educational offering under consideration is currently approved for traditional classroom presentation;
2) The platform utilized for distance education is live and interactive;
3) The instructor verifies photo identification of the students; and
4) The instructor maintains an attendance roster, which includes verifying 100% classroom attendance by, for example, taking attendance at various established times during the course.
