2022 DWI Basic and Advanced Conferences


The DWI Court Team Basic Training and DWI Court Team Advanced Conference are continuing judicial education programs designed especially for DWI Court Teams by the Texas Center for the Judiciary‚Äôs DWI Curriculum Committee. This program is generously funded by a grant from the Texas Department of Transportation. 

The DWI Court Team Basic Training is designed for new DWI Court Teams and new members on established DWI Courts. The curriculum remains the same from year to year to ensure all members receive the same basic, fundamental knowledge on addiction, supervision, and sanctions and incentives.

The DWI Court Team Advanced Conference is open to both new and existing DWI Court Teams.

There is an optional training topic being offered. You must register to attend. 

As always, you'll be able to do evaluations, and download papers in the Texas Center for the Judiciary app. If you don't have the app, download it here: tcj.mosaic-mobile.net/share-app.aspx
