Judicial excellence, staff competency, and professionalism are critical to maintaining Arizona's national reputation for innovation and leadership within its judiciary. All full-time Judicial Branch employees are required to take a minimum of 16 hours of continuing education credit each calendar year. 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 ensure that court personnel receive the education and training necessary to achieve the highest standard of competence, ethical conduct, integrity, professionalism, and accountability.
Our training courses include topics such as ethics, network/computer security, customer service, management training, 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 and computer-based training courses.
