Standardized Curriculum for Orientation Courses

On August 7, 2015, the Judicial Branch Certification Commission (JBCC) approved the newly developed standardized 7-hour pre-certification process service course curriculum. The curriculum was developed and recommended by the Process Server Certification Advisory Board to replace the current individual curriculums.

The standardized curriculum is mandatory, replaces any other curriculum in use, and is required to be implemented by November 1, 2015, by all providers. A course certificate from any other course completed on or after November 1, 2015 will not will not be accepted.

Current course providers have been contacted and advised they must submit a new approval form no later than October 1, 2015 to continue as a JBCC approved course provider. Other providers will also be considered for approval. If you wish to apply for approval as a course provider for the standardized curriculum, please refer to the standardized curriculum on this page. Then you must complete and submit the Pre-Certification Orientation Approval Form, available from the Forms page.

(Note: The civil process service course is a requirement for certification. The JBCC's continuing education requirement is a different requirement; it applies to process servers once they are certified. For information about the continuing education requirement and approval of continuing education courses for process servers, please refer to the Continuing Education page of this website.

The JBCC has also approved the Process Server Certification Advisory Board to begin the development and implementation of a new examination to be given by the JBCC (or vendor). Once the examination is developed, an applicant will take the required examination following the new standardized 7- hour pre-certification course. The JBCC examination will then be a mandatory prerequisite to become certified as a process server. Information will be available here when the implementation date is determined.
