At events- The Training Center does not provide handouts (except for New Judge Stages I & II). Handouts for each event will be uploaded at least two weeks prior to the event and can be downloaded from your TJCTC profile. After logging in, click "View My Class Selections" and you will see the handout button to the right. Please keep in mind that internet is often not available at meeting sites so we recommend you print the handouts ahead of time.
