Ohio Adult Guardianship Education
The Supreme Court of Ohio announced on March 10, 2015 the adoption of new rules to govern adult guardianships in Ohio. The Advisory Committee on Children and Families of the Supreme Court recommended the adoption of Rules of Superintendence for the Courts of Ohio 66.01 through 66.09, which became effective on June 1, 2015.
Superintendence Rules 66.06 and 66.07 describe the mandatory adult guardianship education for a one-time fundamentals course and continuing education requirements for each succeeding year. Pursuant to the rules, adult guardianship education can be provided by the Supreme Court of Ohio or another entity with prior approval of the local court. To assist guardians to meet the requirements of these new rules, the Supreme Court of Ohio Judicial College is developing two offerings of the fundamentals course, one for attorneys and other professional guardians and another for lay person guardians. The six-hour fundamentals courses will be:
- aligned with Sup.R. 66.06
- provided free of charge
- delivered regionally and monthly
- made available online by the end of 2015
Three-hour continuing education seminars will also be developed and available annually, delivered regionally, and provided free of charge beginning in the first quarter of 2016. CLE and CEU credits will be requested for both the fundamentals course and continuing education, as appropriate.
