Rule 10 of the Arizona Rules of Probate Procedure requires training for individuals involved in probate matters, including non-licensed fiduciaries, court investigators, judges, and attorneys serving as appointed counsel or as guardians ad litem for a proposed adult ward or adult protected person. The mandatory training requirements and approved curriculum for each group can be found in Administrative Order No. 2012-62.

Training for attorneys appointed by the court to serve as counsel in probate matters is available through the State Bar of Arizona.
Arizona judges presiding over probate matters must participate in training, which is provided by both local courts and the AOC's Education Services.
