50/60 Minute Credit Hour

MCLE jurisdictions determine CLE/CPD credit hours by dividing the running time of instructional programs by either 60 or 50 minutes. For example, a 90-minute program may earn 1.5 hours of CLE credit in a state that bases its credit on a 60-minute credit hour, and 1.8 hours in a jurisdiction that bases its credit on a 50-minute credit hour. Some jurisdictions round down credit to the nearest 1/2 or 1/4 hour.

The following jurisdictions have a 60-minute credit hour:
AK, AL, AZ, AR, CA, CT, DE, GA, GU, HI, ID, IL, IN, IA, KY, LA, ME, MN, MP, MS, MT, NE, NH, NV, NC, ND, NM, OH, OR, PA, PR, SC, TN, TX, UT, VA, VI, VT, WA, WY, Alberta, BC, NB, NS, Ontario, and Quebec.
