Log in to the CM/ECF Training System to learn how CM/ECF works and to practice electronic filing before using the live system. The CM/ECF Training System mimics the live CM/ECF system using test cases that do not contain official court records. There is no time limit on use of the CM/ECF Training System and there are no PACER charges.

To use the CM/ECF Training System, please follow the steps below.

  1. Make sure application software is installed to read and create PDF files on the device used to access these resources.
  2. Register for a CM/ECF filing account and indicate on the registration form that a training login and password are desired.
  3. Review the User Manual for Attorneys.
  4. Once a training login and password are received, log in to the CM/ECF Training System.

If you have forgotten your training login and/or password, please call the court at 866-784-6273 (toll free) or 202-357-6402 (local) (between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. EST) to receive a new training login and password.
