2006 New York Code - Guardian Education Requirements.

  § 81.39 Guardian education requirements.
    (a) Each incapacitated person is entitled to a guardian whom the court
  finds to be sufficiently capable of performing the duties and exercising
  the powers of a guardian necessary to protect the incapacitated person.
    (b)  Each person appointed by the court to be a guardian must complete
  a training program approved by the chief administrator which covers:
    1. the legal duties and responsibilities of the guardian;
    2. the rights of the incapacitated person;
    3. the available resources to aid the incapacitated person;
    4. an orientation to medical terminology, particularly that related to
  the diagnostic and assessment procedures used to characterize the extent
  and reversibility of any impairment;
    5. the preparation of annual reports, including  financial  accounting
  for the property and financial resources of the incapacitated person.
    (c)  The  court  may,  in  its  discretion,  waive  some or all of the
  requirements of this section or impose additional requirements. In doing
  so, the court  shall  consider  the  experience  and  education  of  the
  guardian  with respect to the training requirements of this section, the
  duties and powers assigned  to  the  guardian,  and  the  needs  of  the
  incapacitated person.
