Registration and Access

Note: This is our regular online course. You may also be interested in the Registration and Access information for our North Dakota version of the course.

You can gain immediate access to this course by following these simple instructions.

Step 1: Ensure that your computer is ready to take the course

To maximize the use of the course, you will need to download Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, Adobe Reader, and Adobe Flash Player (8.0 or higher) if you do not already have them on your computer. This software is free but will require you to have administrative rights on your computer.

(Your judge/attorney may be interested in Online course approved by Minnesota Supreme Court.)
