Florida Family Courts require parents with minor children to complete a parenting course before a parenting plan can be finalized.
This course is approved by the Florida Department of Children and Families as the Parent Education and Family Stabilization Course. It is a minimum of 4 hours and is designed to educate, train, and assist divorcing parents in regards to the impact of divorce on parents and children. The course has a timer which will track the amount of time you spend in the course. You do not have to complete the four (4) hours all at one time. You can log in and out as many times as needed until you complete the course and reach the required four (4) hour minimum. A timer will be displayed on each page to track time spent in the course. You can refresh your page to update the clock.
A Certificate of Completion will be given to the participant that completes a minimum four (4) hours in the Parent Education and Family Stabilization Course and receives a score of at least 70% on the end of course test. The End of Course Test will not be available until the participant has met the four (4) hour requirement. Once the timer has reached four (4) hours, the test will automatically be unlocked and accessible to the participant.
The end of the Course Test is designed to demonstrate the level of comprehension of the learning objectives by participants. The participant must obtain a score of 70% or better to earn a Certificate of Completion. If you do not obtain a score of 70% you must retake the Test until you obtain a score of 70%. The test is not timed and may be retaken at no additional cost until you receive a passing score.
The test questions are Multiple Choice. Please identify the choice that best completes the statement or answers the question. There is only one correct answer per question.
