Guardianship Certification

Continuing Education 

To search our list of approved continuing education courses, please go to the online certification and licensing system on our home page.

Continuing Education Requirements

Certified guardians and provisionally certified guardians must complete twelve hours of continuing education during each two-year certification period. The twelve hours of continuing education must include two hours of ethics and one hour of legislative update. You can carry forward 4 hours of CE to your next certification period. Ethics and Legislative Update hours cannot be carried forward.

Refer to sections 4.0 and 7.7 of the JBCC Rules for additional details on CE requirements.

We are accepting applications for approval of continuing education from both course providers and certified guardians. A brochure, outline or other document that describes the content and the time devoted to each topic must be submitted with each request for approval as well as copies of the speaker bios. Approved courses can be found in our online licensing system. A course must be approved before a certified guardian can claim the hours for renewal purposes.

Applying for Continuing Education Course Approval

To apply for approval of a continuing education course, you must submit a request for CE approval by way of our online certification and licensing system located on our  home page. Please refer to the pdf Guide to Using the Online System on our home page for instructions on the online application process.

Note: If the course is already approved (i.e., it already has a JBCC program number shown on the certificate), you do not have to apply for CE approval.

Applications will be reviewed to determine compliance with Commission's rules. Applicants will be notified of the determination via email.
