Subject: TREC Deadline for Qualifying Course Revisions

January 11, 2017



REVISED DEADLINES FOR QUALIFYING COURSES



Recall that the deadline for revisions to the standards for design and delivery of qualifying courses delivered in the classroom was December 31, 2016. The deadline for revisions to qualifying courses delivered by distance education was set for March 31, 2017.



In order to provide some relief to all qualifying course providers, the Commission will NOT enforce the design and delivery requirements for a period of five months after the applicable deadlines. This means that all providers have until May 31, 2017 to bring classroom courses into compliance and August 31, 2017 for distance education courses. This deadline extension does NOT affect the requirement to update the content of any qualifying course to meet TREC guidelines.



Please contact us at [email protected] or 512-936-3120 if you have any questions any questions.
