How to Register a New Employee

New Constables, Deputy Constables & Constable Clerks

We are excited to begin working with you, but first we need to know who you are!

Create a TJCTC Login

New employees will need to create a TJCTC login in order to register for any Training Center event and view many of our resources. With the login, users will also be able to download forms, view publications, and post questions to the legal board. For security purposes, a login can only be issued to current part-time or full-time employees in the justice court. If you are a Constable, call the Registrar at 512-347-9927 to be registered.

If you are a deputy constable or constable clerk, a New Employee Form must be filled out and submitted by your Constable prior to creating a login. Please have your Constable follow Steps 1 - 3 in order to begin the process.
