      If you need to cancel your reservation for classroom training, please send an email to ecftraining@txnb.uscourts.gov notifying the court you will be unable to attend. Please include the name(s) of the all participants not attending, and the class date. Please allow two (2) days notice when cancelling a reservation.

    2. After you have attended the class, you will fill out the ECF Registration Packet (Registration Form with course certificate and Connectivity Exercise) and mail or deliver it to the following address:
