Too funny - I've never been able to get through an AI on-line course in less than 4 hours. My McKissock record is 45 minutes ...
For the exact same content class?

Every online class I have taken is timed. Even if we are smart enough to rush through, there is a timer running and can not advance to next page until enough minutes have gone by on current page, plus must complete mini quizzes must take to advance to next section. If it is a 6 hour credit course they have their ways of making sure you did attend for 6 hours...

Most of the on line courses I've taken aren't timed. You can skip through and take the quizzes and move on. Some even have a feature where you can speed up the videos. I took the 2 hour law course in way less than an hour

All of them. When they first rolled out there was a requirement to require the full time spent. Now not so much. I am an official graduate of an off shoot of the Evelyn Wood Speed Reading Curriculum and read between 1500 and 2000 words per minute (particularly when its a subject I am familiar with, and after all the years most CE is a re-run). Most of the time I can do 7 hours in +/-2. They are required to test you after each section to "slow you down" but if you know the info, why should you spend extra time on it?

AI USPAP update took me over 6 hours; McKissock USPAP took me less than 2 hours.

Would it be unethical to complete a 6 hour class in 2 hours....

Then claim you took a 6 hour class? :unsure:

I didn't cheat the system. Both providers know exactly how long it took me to take the class as they keep track of that.

"...providers know..."

Okay, so the providers know....
But what about the state professional licensing department???

But not too worry, the last 3 cycles I too used McKissock online.... :LOL:
