Guardian & Conservator Education Updates

Wednesday, May 26, 2021

The Office of Public Guardian provides education, training, and support to private guardians and conservators throughout the state of Nebraska. The number of private guardians and/or conservators trained continues to increase each year. From 2016 to 2020, the OPG provided education to an average of 1,300 private guardians and/or conservators each year. As of April 30, 2021, the OPG has provided education to 363 private guardians and/or conservators across English online, Spanish online, and phone classes.

In-person learning was suspended starting in March of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and replaced with a phone/conference call class. The OPG is happy to announce that in-person learning will return across Nebraska beginning in July 2021. Information about Guardian and Conservator Education, including links to the registration page, can be found online.
