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, depending on the type of training programme you attend, there are some variations to this rule.

Online lessons / self-study / e-learning materials
1 hour = 60 minutes online self-study

Instructor-led, live online classes
1 hour = 45 minutes

Instructor-led in-house classes
1 hour = 45 minutes

1 hour = 45 minutes class time + 15 minutes break, 60 minutes in total

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