Before registering for a parenting course, make sure that parenting course is approved by the court in your county.  Some counties require in person attendance at a parenting course, and may not recognize 'on-line' attendance. Otherwise, its up to you whether you take an on-line or in-person course.

What is a Florida Approved Parenting Course

Parenting courses must be at least 4 hours in duration, designed pursuant to Florida family law to provide information to parents as that information relates to court actions between parents involving parental responsibility, care, time-sharing, and support of a child or children.


Each parenting course will include a required 25 question multiple choice test designed to demonstrate the level of comprehension of the learning objectives by the participant. You will be required to pass the test to receive a certificate of completion.


Parenting course providers may charge a reasonable fee for the class, generally around $40.00.  After completing the parenting course you will receive a certificate of completion, which should be filed with the court to inform the judge that you have complied with the requirement to take a parenting course.
