Tips to Survive 4 Hour Court Ordered Anti Theft Class

Updated: Jan 15

We’ve all had those moments when we have to do something that seems completely pointless. You know, like take a class that you have no interest in and has nothing to do with your life or career. When you are handed a court order, there is no way around it. You must take the class or face further consequences. All of us want to get through it as quickly and painlessly as possible. However, with so much information flying at us every day, these classes can be quite challenging. So let’s talk about how you can survive this experience and come out on the other side with your confidence intact.

Find out exactly what is required of you.

The first thing you need to do is to find out exactly what is required of you. You will want to know the length of the course, and how many hours are required. You need to be sure you are taking the kind of theft course the court has ordered. Is it a theft class, a shoplifting class, financial crimes or some other type of course? The point is, you need to know exactly what is required of you so you can organize yourself to be successful and to provide the proper certification of your course completion to the court.

Be prepared and organized.

Make sure you are prepared and organized. Use a notebook and a pen even for an online course to help you learn and retain key points in the program. You will be tested on the material you learn, so it pays to organize the most important information you learn so you’ll be able to easily respond in testing situations.

Try to see the value in what you are learning.

Whether you have a new appreciation for the legal system, a new understanding of how theft deterrent systems work, or a new skill set in taking notes and studying, try to see the value in what you are learning. This will help you to stay engaged in the course, and it will help you to remember what was taught. Try to see how the material is relevant to your life. This will help you to be more engaged in the course, and it will help you to remember what was taught.

Final thoughts

No matter how silly or pointless the class may seem, you have to stay engaged in it. You have to keep your eyes and ears open. You have to take notes. You have to try to see the value in what you are learning. Stay engaged, stay prepared, and stay focused. You may hate the subject matter, but you still have to do everything you can to succeed in the course. You don’t want to have to take the class again especially since you now know what is expected of you.
