Beyond Compliance FAQs

Q: What constitutes successful completion of a qualified BC event?
A: For BC webinars and instructor-led courses, individuals must be present for at least 90% of the duration of the event. HR must have a record of attendance on hand.

Q: How often do I need to complete the annual requirement?
A: All Kent State employees must complete their two hour goal annually. The calendar is based on the university's fiscal year (July 1 - June 30). 

Q: How are BC hours computed?
A: BC hours are earned for each of training completed.  For example, a 1 hour webinar counts for 1 hour of BC credit.

Q: If I watch an archived BC webinar, will that count towards the two-hour minimum?
A: Yes, but only if the webinar is located in the Beyond Compliance Archived Courses class in Blackboard. Visit learn.kent.edu to access.

Q: What are my options if I work part-time, or on 2nd or 3rd shift?
A:  KSU employees not available during ‘traditional’ working hours to receive BC credit through the Beyond Compliance Archived Courses class in Blackboard. Visit learn.kent.edu to access.

Q: What if we have a large group to watch a webinar or presentation?
A: Group or team viewing can make excellent learning opportunities through discussion! Just have someone record participant names and email addresses on a sign-in sheet, then scan and email it to hrd@kent.edu.
