Sounds like you might need an LMS (Learning MAnagement System) that has those specific functionalities: ability to see how long people spent in the module, and ability to track who completed it for compliance purposes. 

Here's a few resources to help you out:

OK, the reason that I asked was because our LMS does not provide that
functionality, so I was hoping that we could build it into the Storyline
course and then upload the requirement as part of the SCORM file.

I'll keep digging. Thanks for your help

That's a really clever idea! The thing that I can't quite work out is how
to add the two hour audio so that it has to run simultaneously with
multiple slides that are being accessed. I suppose that it could be done
with putting the 2 hour audio on the base layer page and then have each
layer be a new slide. The user can navigate through the layers, but still
need to be held to the 2-hour time limit. Thanks for the idea, I think that
this will work.

I originally tried using a silent audio file that ran for two hours, but
that made the course file enormous and just about crashed my machine, so
then I took another great idea and just set the base page duration to 2
hours, added the content slides to layers with forward and back buttons to
move around in the layers and then disabled the Next button and set a
trigger to advance the slide when the timeline ended on the base page.
Worked great and the file size is much more manageable.

It's sad that the rules require a 2-hour minimum, especially if one could read the content in less time. Since you have to force that amount of time, I think an opening slide should tell the users that they will be forced to be in the course for 2 hours to be marked as successfully complete. And perhaps have a note appear on the "last-slide" layer that indicates they need to keep the course open until the Next button is enabled and they can go to the last slide.
