Paper Form 1 — Sponsors may download a paper Form 1 application for course accreditation by the Washington State MCLE Board.
Note: The best way to submit a Form 1 application is through the online MCLE system by following the steps below. The approval process for online Form 1s is significantly shorter than for paper Form 1s.
Attendance Certification Form — All sponsors are required by APR 11.6(a)(1) to distribute a copy of the Attendance Certification Form to all Washington State attendees at each live, in-person CLE program. Attendees are to fill them out and return them to sponsors. This is to help sponsors accurately report the attendance for each program.
Model Course Evaluation — Sponsors may download this form to distribute to attendees, or may use their own forms to collect course evaluations. The regulation regarding this form changed on January 1, 2009.
In the regulations that were effective until December 31, 2008, APR 11 Regulation 104(e)(2) required that private law firms, corporate legal departments, and government agencies submit course evaluation forms to the MCLE Board within 30 days after the end of each CLE activity. However, the MCLE Board adopted a policy subsequent to the effective date of this regulation directing that evaluations be retained (or a complete compilation of all ratings and all comments) and only submitted to the Board upon request.
All sponsors (not just in-house sponsors) must provide course attendees an evaluation sheet to complete.
All sponsors (not just in-house sponsors) must retain the completed evaluation sheets, or a compilation of all numerical ratings and all comments, for two years. Copies must be provided to the MCLE Board upon request. (APR 11 Regulation 102(e).
Read the rules and regulations that went into effect on January 1, 2009.
Fee Calculation Worksheet — Sponsors may use this form to help calculate the fees due when applying for course accreditation and/or reporting attendance. This form must be used only by sponsors who are (1) unable (or not required) to use the online MCLE system, and (2) submitting a paper Form 1 and/or paper attendance report. (Note: If a paper Form 1 is submitted, a paper attendance report must be submitted.)
