Self-Paced Modules

Self-Paced Modules  

What are self-paced modules? 

These learning modules can be completed at your convenience and in multiple sittings. They are interactive and will have activities you must complete before you move on to the next section. You can take the module on your computer, tablet, or phone. And they are worth judicial education credit! 

How can I get credit? 

Once you complete the self-paced module, fill out the module certification form. Please note: The module certification form is different than the webinar certification form and can be found below.
