Course in Community Justice Services (Commissioner for Declarations)

10793NAT

About this Course

The 10793NAT Course in Providing Community Justice Services (Commissioner for Declarations) provides participants with the knowledge and skills to assist them in their community volunteering responsibilities of witnessing and certifying documents. This 1-day course (plus pre and post course work), enables eligible applicants to apply to become a Commissioner for Declarations – the Department of Justice and Attorney-General will charge an additional fee for your registration.

The role of a Cdec is a purely administrative role, without any judicial function – so they don’t deal with any type of court process.

A Cdec can:

  • witness documents
  • witness statutory declarations
  • witness affidavits
  • witness and administer oaths and affirmations
  • certify a true copy of an original document

A Cdec cannot:

  • issue search warrants
  • issue arrest warrants
  • grant bail

Assessment is completed by open book, question and answer, from home, following the 1 day in class.  This course can also be completed by distance learning (once you click on Book Now, choose the closest Intake Date to when you want to start – the Intake Date is only for our office purposes, you are welcome to start the books as soon as you have made payment).  You have up to 12 months to complete and submit your assessment.

There are a number of restrictions/pre-requisites when it comes to applying for Cdec registration – please ensure you check these below, before enrolling.
