Guardianship Training

Guardianship Training

Catholic Charities is developing an online 8-hour training course to replace the live sessions due to COVID-19 guidelines on gatherings and social distancing.   Please check back in mid-July 2020 for more information or call the program for further details. Guardianship Training Program is an eight-hour course that is required of each person appointed by the court to be a guardian and must be completed within four months after appointment.

This is a court-approved, non-professional guardian training course and meets statutory guardianship education requirements. Taught by attorneys, financial planners, professional guardians and case managers, it is sponsored by the Palm Beach County Bar Association Guardianship Education Committee. 

Course material covers:

  • Legal duties and responsibilities of a guardian
  • Rights of the ward
  • Preparation of guardianship reports
  • Preparation of financial accounting of the ward’s property
  • Availability of local resources to aid the ward

The course is typically held four times per calendar year.  A certificate of attendance is provided at the completion of course. For more information, please contact the Program Staff.
