  • Cancellations Due to Coronavirus

  • Education Event Policies

    • The registration fee for a new clerk seminar is $150 payable by check or money order. You are on your own for all travel expenses. If you opt for a single room, TJCTC will charge you $55/per night payable by check or money order to TJCTC at least 4 weeks before the seminar.

      In order to keep our seminars at capacity and give everyone enough time to request funds, we are requesting the registration fee three months 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.

    • Once payment is received, a confirmation letter with hotel and event information will be emailed to you.

    • TJCTC will provide a catered breakfast and lunch on the first day of the seminar and a full breakfast buffet on the last day. You will be on your own for dinner each night.

    • Attendees must print their own handouts. All handouts will be available to download through your TJCTC Profile two weeks prior to the event with updates being made throughout the year. If you anticipate changing into another class onsite, please consider printing those handouts as well. Wifi is not provided in the meeting rooms.

    • Take advantage of the funds available to you for educational programs. Most counties have a travel budget for expenditures related to Court Personnel 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 Technology Fund which can help finance the cost of continuing education and training for justice court judges and clerks regarding technology enhancements for justice courts. (CCP, art 102.0173)

      -The Judicial and Court Personnel Training Fund which can help finance the cost of continuing education and training for justice court judges and clerks. (Govt code 56, sec 56.004)

      -The Justice Court Building Security Fund can assist in paying for a portion of continuing education on security issues for court personnel. (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 Technology Fund and The Justice Court Building Security Fund.
