Guardian and Conservator Education

Guardian and Conservator Education

The Office of Public Guardian provides training, education, and support to individuals serving as guardians and/or conservators. This course, Becoming a Guardian and/or Conservator, is required unless specifically waived by the Court. The course content, approved by the Nebraska Supreme Court, provides detailed information for those serving as guardian or conservator. The course is available in two formats.

Online Class

The online course is highly recommended, as it provides the greatest flexibility and access to the course information, while also being the least expensive option. 

English Class

Effective August 7, 2023, all English Online participants will register and take the course using the new platform. Each person who registers for the class will need their own email address. Co-guardians/co-conservators must register and pay separately using unique email addresses. Law firms who register clients will need to use the client’s email address. Upon successful registration and payment, participants will be given immediate access to the course (the 7 day waiting period has been eliminated).

Spanish Class

Effective August 7, 2023, all Spanish Online participants will continue to take the course in its existing format. The migration to the new platform for Spanish Online is anticipated this fall.

Access to the course will be sent by email within seven (7) days of payment. DO NOT register and pay for the class more than once. Each person who registers for the online class will need their own email address. Co-guardians/co-conservators must register and pay separately using separate email addresses. NO EXCEPTIONS.
