We’ve been asked about, and have started planning, our consulting and certification programs.
If you are interested in getting certified in 123 role(s), please let us know. You can start your training now and be an early adopter in our certification programs, helping us to define them.
You do NOT need to be a legal tech consultant to get certified in 123. Our certifications are also designed for the staff of law firms. We anticipate many law firms to ask one staff member to become:
- Certified 123 Form Designer
- Certified 123 Form Manager
- Certified 123 Intake & Form Integrator
- Certified 123 Firm Implementer & Administrator
We also anticipate law firm employers to begin looking for these certifications in new hires.
Our introductory certification is for all firm members who will be making initial consultation appointments, contacting website visitor prospects, and greeting people coming in for their initial consultations.

Complete the online tutorials for that role
The Tutorials can be found in the key pages for each particular role. Click on the graduation cap symbol. You will see one or more tutorials for each role. 123 keeps track of each users’ completion of each tutorial. Tutorials include short videos clips and step-by-step instructions for you to try each action. Currently we have only completed four tutorials for Form Designers and our first Form Manager Tutorial is in development. Please give us feedback on these for defects & improvements. Each Tutorial has a corresponding video. These videos are a compilation of the short video clips in the Tutorials and can be found on our Training Videos page located in the Help menu (?). These videos are not required for your certification but they are good overviews and refreshers.
