The Alabama Ethics Commission has made on-line training on the new Ethics Law available for public officials and public employees. Act 2010-762, provides that officials in office on the effective date of the Act must "obtain training within 120 days of such date. Thereafter, all municipal mayors, council members and commissioners, and county commissioners shall obtain training within 120 days of being sworn into office."
Employees required to file the Statement of Economic Interests must also obtain on-line training from the Ethics Commission within 120 days of the effective date of the Act. Employees hired after January 1, 2011 must be trained within 90 days of being hired. To simplify training, the Alabama Ethics Commission has provided an on-line video. This 55 minute video satisfies the training requirement. You must watch the entire video and complete the form following the video in order to be certified.For further information and to access the video, please visit
