Following completion of the training, a Guardian ad Litem may apply for Board certification (the application for certification must be filed within three (3) years of taking the training). However, there are other requirements that must be met in order for a GAL to be 'Board certified'.

Participants should understand what this criteria is prior to completing the GAL Board sponsored training. Please review the requirements found in the 300 section of the rules.

The training requirements apply to all persons seeking certification as a Guardian ad Litem, regardless of profession, or years in guardian ad litem practice. For other requirements of initial certification, see Part Gal 303 of the Board's Administrative Rules.
