Guardian and Conservator Training Class

VAS will no longer be offering Guardian and Conservator Training beginning 2016

VAS has offered training for guardians and conservators in Douglas County for almost twenty years. Our organization and volunteer attorneys have enjoyed meeting and helping those taking on these important responsibilities. Beginning 2016, the training will be provided by the Nebraska Office of the Public Guardian.

VAS has been approved to provide Guardian and Conservator training in Douglas County to court-appointed Guardians and Conservators. VAS holds a monthly, three-hour Guardian and Conservator Training class. The class is taught by an attorney, and covers the rights of protected persons (wards), the legal obligations and responsibilities of guardians and conservators, information on deadlines for reporting to the courts, and instructions for filling out court-required forms.


Classes are held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Please check the registration form for the location of the class. This schedule is subject to change. Watch KM3TV, WOWT, or KETV for any weather-related cancellations.
