Training is an important part of an employee's experience at the Arizona Supreme Court. All full-time Judicial Branch employees are required to take a minimum of 16 hours of continuing education credit for calendar year 2014. Part-time employees and new hires have pro-rated hour requirements. The Arizona Supreme Court has a Committee on Judicial Education and Training (COJET)
made up of judges, probation officers and other court employees from around the state to guide judicial branch educational requirements and to make sure that employees have the skills they need to do their job and progress in a rewarding career path.
Our training courses cover Ethics, Arizona Courts, Customer Service, Finance, Automation, Communication, Legal Issues, Safety, Supervisor/Management Training, Time Management, AOC Policies and Procedures, and much more. Employees can attend accredited (approved) educational events to meet their training requirements including conferences, seminars, workshops, webinars, broadcasts, and college classes. Training is also offered through audio or video programs, books and independent computer-based training courses. Some employees may also be eligible to serve as faculty for court-related courses. COJET courses are a great way to stay current in your field, gain valuable knowledge, skills, and abilities, and increase your marketability as an employee.
Employees are paid for time spent in training when requested to attend that training during normal business hours. Many training opportunities are low-cost or free. Non-exempt employees must obtain permission from their supervisors to complete training outside normal work hours.
