Registration/ Texas State Overhead Assessment

Registration/ Texas State Overhead Assessment
The Registration Fee/Texas State University Overhead Assessment Fee for all Twenty-Hour Seminars is now $100.00*. Our grant has not increased in a number of years and this increase, which was made several years ago, allows us to off-set inflation so we can continue to offer quality education without decreasing the number of available training spots. In fact, it allows us to offer more training opportunities such as the three, One-Day Workshops we have planned for this academic year. Registration information for the workshops will be sent out with the 20-Hour Seminar catalog. Keep checking our website www.tjctc.org for updates.

* Pursuant to the grant conditions, the registration fee is mandatory and is returned to the grant to be spent as restricted funds. The Texas State University Overhead Assessment is used for activity expenses that the Grant cannot cover, such as excess meal and break costs, salary supplements, etc. These unrestricted funds are deposited into the Texas State University account. Counties or individuals who cannot afford the Overhead Assessment may request a waiver.

Online Registration

Online Registration
Go to the Training Center’s Website at www.tjctc.org, log into My TJCTC Home using your first name, last name and county.

Click on Online Registration then click on the seminar you wish to attend. If the name of the seminar appears in RED the seminar is full. You may register for the waiting list or you may choose another seminar.  

Select your room preference. I Do Not Need a Room; Double Occupancy sharing with another attendee which is no charge to you; or Single or Share Room with Spouse which requires a surcharge. If you select Double Occupancy, click on Select a Roommate and select a specific roommate from the drop-down menu which will list possible roommate choices. If that person is not listed, they have not registered yet. If you do not have a specific roommate or if your preferred roommate has not yet registered, you may select “Any”. After your specific roommate registers, you can go back to your TJCTC Home page and select their name. If you have special needs, type them in the “special needs” box and we will make every effort to have the hotel honor them, i.e. wheelchair accessible, close to elevator, low floor, etc. We cannot honor requests for “smoking” rooms as most hotels have gone smoke-free.

STEP 4.  
Select your classes by choosing a Track. This year we are offering three tracks which you must follow throughout the seminar—Introduction (Basic), Discussion (Intermediate), and Problem Solving (Advanced). Choose the Track you wish to attend by clicking in the circle to the left of the Track name. A green dot will appear inside the circle.

  1. Introductory Track: Basic — Recommended for those with 0-3 years of experience serving Civil Process, and/or minimal civil process workload or those preparing for the TCLEOSE Civil Process Proficiency Certificate exam (CPPC).
  2. Discussion Track: Intermediate — Recommended for those with more than 3 years of experience serving Civil Process and/or experience with a high volume of civil process workload and have previously attended at least 2 Basic/Introductory level Civil Process Seminars. Limited to 36 attendees.
  3. Problem Solving Track: Advanced — Recommended for Constables and deputies that are well versed in Civil Process. It is recommended that you have your TCLEOSE Civil Process Proficiency Certificate and have previously attended at least 2 Discussion Track Civil Process Seminars.

After you have made your Track selection, click on Register at the bottom of the page. You will be taken to a copy of your invoice. If there is a mistake a box will pop up asking you to correct the mistake.

STEP 6.  
Print your invoice immediately. Your invoice reflects the registration fee and Texas State Overhead Assessment for a total of $100.00. Please arrange for payment as soon as possible.

Your registration will not be final and no room reservation will be made until your payment is received. After we receive payment, a confirmation letter will be e-mailed to you. Payment MUST be received at least 2 weeks prior to the seminar. Your name will not be listed on the online roster until we have received your payment. If you need to reprint your invoice or confirmation letter, you can do so on your My TJCTC Home page.
