Is your course approved by the US Trustee?
We are approved to issue certificates evidencing completion of a personal financial management instructional course in compliance with the Bankruptcy Code. Approval does not endorse or assure the quality of a Provider’s services. You can find us listed for your bankruptcy district on the US Trustee website at http://www.usdoj.gov/ust/eo/bapcpa/ccde/de_approved.htm.
How long will it take to receive my certificate after I complete the course?
If you have paid with a credit card, your certificate will be emailed within
45 minute, or the following business day.
If you are paying with a check or money order, your certificate will be emailed to you after your payment has been received. This generally takes 7-10 business days.
If your attorney is paying on your behalf, your certificate will be emailed within 24 hours of receipt of payment, or the following business day.
If you qualify as a no-cost student, please refer to the terms listed on our website. Your certificate will be emailed to you once proof of qualification has been received and approved.
My spouse and I filing jointly. Do we both need to take the course?
Only if you registered separately. However, you can register jointly and take the course side-by-side. If you registered separately you must complete the course separately in order for you both to receive certificates. After one of you has completed the course, be sure to close your internet browser, then return to www.02start.com. Otherwise the original student's information may be saved in the registration and you will not be able to create a new account.
I need my certificate sent to my attorney. How can I make sure they get a copy?
When you register, either enter your Priority Code (if your attorney gave you one), or your attorney’s email address. We will automatically email them a copy of your certificate at the time it is issued. We do not provide certificates directly to the Court. It is the student’s responsibility to submit their certificate to the Court.
If I leave the course once I've started, do I lose my progress?
Your information and test progress is saved in our database for 90 days after you've registered for the course. Even if you've yet to pay for the course, the information is saved for 14 days. You're allowed to take the test within these timeframes at your own pace.
Can I get an additional copy of my certificate at a later time?
We can send you additional copies of your certificate for up to 90 days after you've registered for the course. To request an additional copy of your certificate please email us at email@example.com
Will you send a copy of my certificate to the court?
No, 02start.com does not provide information directly to the court. It is the responsibility of the student or their attorney to present the information to the appropriate court.
What information do I need to provide to start the course?
- Name, address, and phone number
