Guardianship Training Courses

You can take two training courses for family guardianship situations on Eastern Florida State College's Melbourne Campus. These courses happen twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring.

Registration usually starts about a month before the class begins.

These courses are taught by lawyers, financial planners, healthcare experts, and professional care managers. They are supported by EFSC, the judges from the 18th Judicial Circuit, and the Brevard Guardianship Association. While the courses don't lead to professional certification, they're helpful for family-related guardianship situations.
