Mandatory Education Hours for District & Statutory County Court Coordinators 

Continuing Education

Court coordinators of district and statutory county courts are required to complete 16 hours of continuing education each year, except as otherwise provided by statute or the Rules of Judicial Education promulgated by the Court of Criminal Appeals. Section 74.106, Texas Government Code, provides for this continuing education requirement.  

When a court coordinator attends an approved continuing education program, the coordinator will submit a request for credit to the Texas Center for the Judiciary (TCJ), documenting the hours earned. The TCJ is responsible for tracking the education hours of court coordinators. See also Rules of Judicial Education (PDF) on our Rules & Standards page.

Education Program Providers

A number of organizations provide education programs that can be utilized to satisfy the continuing education hours requirement.
