You are well advised to complete the course as soon as possible and provide the certificate of completion to your attorney's office so they can tender it to the Court. We know the providers say they will file the certificate of completion with the Court and sometimes they do but people get busy and things happen so we prefer not to take a chance, because your case will generally not be finalized without it.
