Is a 30-minute interval between accredited and non-accredited education required in virtual activities?

Standard 5.2 includes reference to a required 30-minute interval between accredited and nonaccredited education for live activities, whether in-person or online.  For live, online activities, if the learner will remain in the same “virtual space” for a nonaccredited session, then the provider must ensure that there is a 30-minute interval before or after accredited education.

However, there is no 30-minute interval required if the learner will be required to leave the virtual space (to transition between accredited and nonaccredited activities) by doing something like clicking a link.
