LinkedIn Learning FAQs:

Q: How do we define "Credits Earned"? Are those different from completing a course?

Each of the third-party organizations (PMI, NASBA, SHRM, etc.) sets its own standards and requirements for what counts as a credit, what they call the credit, and what actions a learner must take to earn it.

LinkedIn Learning uses each organization's individual definition to display the credits learners earn. For example, a learner watching NASBA courses must watch all videos, and earn at least 70% on the exam at the end of the course in order to earn credits. For all other programs, the learner must simply watch all the videos.

Q: Can I earn partial credits for an eligible course that I started watching but haven’t fully completed?
Unfortunately, you’ll have to complete the course to earn credits for it. We don’t provide partial credits for eligible courses.
Q: Will LinkedIn Learning report the information about my attainment of Continuing Education Credits to each third-party organization?
No. LinkedIn Learning doesn’t report Continuing Education credits earned on behalf of the learners or their organizations.
