Guardian and Conservator Education

Guardian and Conservator Education

The Office of Public Guardian provides training, education, and support to individuals serving as guardians and/or conservators. This course, Becoming a Guardian and/or Conservator, is required unless specifically waived by the Court. The course content, approved by the Nebraska Supreme Court, provides detailed information for those serving as guardian or conservator. The course is available in two formats.


Online Class

The online course is highly recommended, as it provides the greatest flexibility and access to the course information, while also being the least expensive option. Registrants must have a desktop or laptop computer with a stable internet connection. The course does NOT work on phones or tablets. Access to the course will be sent by email within seven (7) days of payment. Please DO NOT register and pay for the class more than once. Each person who registers for the online class will need their own email address. Co-guardians/co-conservators must register and pay separately using separate email addresses. NO EXCEPTIONS.
