Do I have to be certified to be a guardian?

There were requirements to being a guardian. One is you have to be over 18 years of age. Number two, you cannot be a convicted felon. And number three is you have to take the eight-hour guardianship course, which can be done online. So there’s a rebuttable presumption that if you’re over 18, you’re not a convicted felon, and you’ve taken the course, that you were qualified to be a guardian.
