In order to keep our seminars at capacity and give everyone enough time to request funds, we are requesting the registration fee one month prior to the event start date. Once you are registered for an event, an invoice with due dates will be available for you to download and print within your TJCTC profile.

You are on your own for all your travel expenses and if you opt for a single room, you will need to pay $55/night to TJCTC. TJCTC will provide a catered breakfast and lunch on the first two class days and a full breakfast buffet on the last day.

  • Once you register and send payment, you will receive a confirmation email with specific information about hotel check-in times and procedures.
  • TJCTC will make hotel reservations for you in order to get a discounted rate. Do not contact the hotel about reservations.
  • If you would like to stay an additional day, please contact Laura at Additional nights will be based upon availability and at the best available rate. You will be on your own for all charges.
  • Handouts are not provided. They will be available on your TJCTC profile two weeks before the seminar for printing. If you anticipate changing into another class onsite, please consider printing those handouts as well. Wifi is not provided in the meeting rooms.

  • For any additional questions, call us at 512-347-9927.

Paying for an Event

Take advantage of the funds available to you for educational programs. Most counties have a travel budget for expenditures related to Constable & Deputy Constable educational training and travel. However, if the court’s budget is not sufficient, there are other options available to the court such as:

-The Justice Court Building Security Fund can assist in paying for a portion of continuing education on security issues (CCP, art 102.017 (d-1) (12))

The policies and procedures to withdraw and use these funds may vary from county to county. Locate your county auditor regarding available funds for training and your county’s policy.

*If you don’t know what travel funds are available you should request a copy of your budget from the county auditor and if necessary, a copy of the funds available in the Justice Court Building Security Fund.


Do you have a question about registering for an event, payment, or hotel/room reservations for an event? Please contact our Program Administrator, Laura Villarreal, by phone at (512) 347-9927, ext. 200 or via email at
