Temporary Judge Training

Completion of this course will help temporary judges satisfy their training requirements in the subject area of the course (ethics, small claims, traffic, unlawful detainer, juvenile, or family law). [CRC 2.812, 2.813; CCP §116.240.]

Retired judicial officers who serve as temporary judges must satisfy these requirements if five or more years have passed since they last served as either a full-time judge or an assigned judge. If, however, a retired judicial officer is asked to serve as a temporary judge in small claims court, he or she must satisfy the small claims court requirements before hearing a case. [CRC 2.812(d); see CCP §116.240(b).]
