  • Education Hours

    • Yes!

      The Court of Criminal Appeals has released an emergency order allowing judges to take online courses and webinars for all 20 of their required judicial education hours for FY20 (which ends on August 31, 2020), including their civil hours. For more details on judicial education for this year, click here. 

    • Every judge must receive a two-hour class on Child Disability issues in each year ending in a 0 or 5. A two-hour webinar satisfying this requirement will be posted by May 15 on this page. Any judge who attended a live 20-hour seminar this year has already taken this class, and won't need to take it again.

      Additionally, any judge who did not attend a live 20-hour seminar this year and is using online hours to satisfy their judicial education requirement needs to take the TJCTC webinars on Setting Bail and The Challenges and Opportunities of Self-Represented Litigants. These 2-hour webinars will be posted by May 15.

      For your convenience, all three of these webinars may be found in the Required Webinar category on our webinar page

    • Yes! 

      Judges who missed Stage III due to coronavirus have special requirements. Go to our new judge page for more information

      If you were appointed after April 2020, these requirements do not apply; you can attend new judge Stage I in December. However, you may still take webinars and have them added to your transcript. 

    • Yes! In order to receive credit, you must watch the full webinar and then submit this form for credit for each webinar. 

    • Yes! We will add webinars you have watched to your TJCTC transcript. However, the webinars will NOT count for TCOLE credit. 

      In order to have your completed webinar added to your transcript, you must watch the full webinar and then submit this form for credit for each webinar. 

  • How to Get Credit for Online Learning

    • In order to get credit for a live webinar that you attend at a particular time, you must register under your own name and email. If you register and attend the entire webinar, you will automatically receive credit. 

      What happens if I watch the webinar in a group or under someone else's name? 
      You may also get credit - but there's one extra step. Please fill out our webinar certification form to receive credit. 

    • If you watch a TJCTC recording, you can receive credit for it. 

      You must fill out the certification form on our webinar certification page

      Please only submit once and allow us 1 week to add the webinar to your transcript. 

    • Once you have completed a module, the last screen will list instructions for you to follow in order to receive credit. 

      Everyone will receive the amount of credit the module says it is worth. If you take longer to finish then the time finished, that is fine, but you will not receive more credit. 

    • The videos on TJCTC's YouTube Channel are not for credit. They are short, helpful videos on specific hot topics. 

    • If you have questions about whether online learning from another entity will count for judicial education credit, please email Jessica at jessforeman@txstate.edu with the agenda and agency that is providing the course.
