Adult Guardianship Education

Superintendence Rules 66.06 and 66.07 describe mandatory adult guardianship education, including a one-time fundamentals course and continuing education requirements for each following year. To help meet this requirement, the Supreme Court of Ohio is offering free courses to guardians of adults.

These courses are offered in many communities throughout Ohio and online. Please click below for more information about each offering to find the option that works best for you, or check with your local probate court for other possible court-approved education.
