Before a course can be added to your MCLE attendance records, it must be approved for MCLE credit in Idaho. If you are not sure whether or not a course has been approved for MCLE credits, please Search Approved Courses before submitting attendance verification.
The Idaho State Bar does not have to receive any form of attendance verification for you to count an approved course toward meeting your MCLE requirements. Courses must be approved for Idaho MCLE credit, but inclusion of your name on the attendance records is not required.
If the course has not been approved for Idaho MCLE credit, you must apply for accreditation. A course cannot be used to meet your MCLE requirements until is has been approved for Idaho MCLE credit. For more information about applying for credit, visit our MCLE Accreditation page.
If you want to have an Idaho MCLE approved course included on your Idaho State Bar MCLE attendance records, there are two ways to do it:
Attendance List Submitted by the Course Provider
This is the simplest and most reliable way to get your name on the ISB attendance records. Most course providers understand the importance of keeping good attendance information and will send this information to us if you ask. If the provider keeps track of attendance, make sure to always sign the attendance sheets. Your name should be clear and legible. Always include your ISB membership number on the sign-in sheets. Ask the course provider to send us a copy of the attendance list. We prefer providers to use our Attendance List Excel Spreadsheet, but they can use their own form as long as it contains the same information. Please email Kim Wilson to obtain this spreadsheet (this is a temporary measure). With the providers’s attendance list in our files, we should not need to do any further checking on attendance even if your MCLE compliance is audited.
Attorney Completes and Submits the ISB Attorney Self-Verification of Attendance
If the course provider does not keep track of attendance or if you have difficulties getting the provider to certify your attendance, you can verify your own attendance by completing an Attorney Self-Verification of Attendance form. By submitting one of these forms, you are requesting that your name be added to the ISB attendance records. Although self-verification is not considered “official,” it allows us to help you keep track of your MCLE credits. Only use self-verification if you cannot get attendance certification from the course provider.
