How long is an 'hour'?

In academic context, it is industry practice to count hours as 45 minutes. This is our practice at Lingu too for classes in traditional and virtual classroom. However, in online self-study, hours are 60 minutes. Both types of training still count as 1 hour.


60 minutes online self-study + 45 minutes attended classroom lesson

Total time counted: 2 hours


Both virtual/traditional class attendance and time spent on the self-paced course will be accounted and stated on your course certificate.


One exception to the above rules exists for the Kompetansepluss courses, where 1 hour = 60 minutes (45 minutes class + 15 minutes break).
