Private Administrator Training

The Public Trustee, together with the Office of the Public Advocate, runs a 3-hour session to help Private Administrators better understand what is required of them. This session is appropriate for both new administrators and those who require a refresher on how to prepare their annual accounts. A catering and materials cost of $25 applies, which can be reimbursed from the Represented Person’s funds.
