CM/ECF Electronic Learning Modules

The Training Branch of the IT Systems Deployment and Support Division of the Administrative Office of the U. S. Courts has created Electronic Learning Modules (ELMs).  They are intended to acquaint users with some of the enhancements that are available with the new release.  The ELMs, however, are not intended to cover every possible activity and are subject to customization.  Each ELM is a short lesson covering a specific CM/ECF topic and is designed to be taken at the user’s own pace.
