Community Justice Services Courses Overview

Have you always wanted to contribute to your community? Get qualified and give back with our JP (Qual) and CDec courses.  

A Justice of the Peace helps people during the most important moments of their lives. Births, deaths, marriages, divorces, buying property or travelling. There are so many occasions where people need the services of a JP (Qual).  

Taking a Justice of the Peace course can have many benefits. JPs play an essential role in the community by witnessing and certifying documents, completing statutory declarations and affidavits, and performing other important duties. 

A Commissioner for Declarations performs a similar role in their community, witnessing documents and taking statutory declarations, though with less authority and power than a JP (Qual). 

By completing a Justice of the Peace or Commissioner for Declarations course you will gain valuable skills and specialised knowledge that will qualify you to perform these important community roles.  

It can also provide you with personal and professional development opportunities, such as improving your communication skills and expanding your network. Being a JP can also enhance your resume and make you a more attractive candidate for future employment opportunities. Overall, completing a JP (Qual) or CDec course will provide you with valuable skills, personal fulfillment, and professional development opportunities.
