40-hr training

I am pleased that Three Trusts was commissioned by the Colorado State Court Administrator's Office (SCAO) to write, with the Honorable Laurie A. Clark, the 40-hour curriculum that has been adopted as the mandatory training for all Child and Family Investigators. Judge Clark and I were able to present eight trainings over 2013 and 2013.

Upcoming CFI trainings

The 40-hr trainings, mandated by Chief Justice Directive 04-08, updated 12/12, are scheduled as follows:

February 24-28, 2014. Ralph Carr Judicial Center at 1300 Broadway St., Denver
8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Click on the link to register. I believe this is full, and there is a waitlist.
