Attorney General Shirley Bond has revealed that a new Centre for Court Administration is in the works for BC, and will be launched in early 2012.
“The Centre for Court Administration, a partnership between the Ministry of Attorney General and JIBC [Justice Institute of BC], is under development, with a launch date of early 2012. In its initial stages, the priority will be on new employees and training for staff in specialized areas of court administration work, such as criminal registry operations and court clerking.
Details are being finalized, but the program will include a combination of online courses, virtual classroom work and in-person training at JIBC campuses in New Westminster and throughout the province. The first courses are anticipated to be offered in the next few months.”
It was also announced that 24 new sheriff recruits will begin their training with the JIBC on January 23, 2012.
