Lay Guardianship Training
RCW 11.88.020 requires persons who are not certified professional guardians, but who the Court appoints to serve as a Guardian, must complete state approved training within 90 days after appointment by the Court. The training is available online from the Administrative Office of the Courts at https://www.courts.wa.gov/programs_orgs/guardian/?fa=guardian.layGuardianship&type=training
If you have been appointed as a Guardian, and have not received the training, you must do so within 90 days of appointment. If you need additional time to complete the training, prior to the 90 days passing you should request the Court for an extension of time. The form needed for that request is located at: https://www.courts.wa.gov/forms/?fa=forms.contribute&formID=92 . You can also send an email to [email protected] and request assistance.
