While originated in Southern California, DES classes are accepted by many Judicial Jurisdictions nationwide. If you are Court-Ordered, DES strongly recommends that you confirm with the referral source that classes will be compliant with that jurisdiction’s policies before signing up. If there is any question regarding this compliance, company founder and executive director, Patricia Verwiel, may be reached via E-mail at, or by phone at (714) 585-5577.

CLASSES’s on-line classes include Anger Management, Life Skills, Drug & Alcohol Awareness levels (I and II), Behavior Modification, Petty Theft and Victim Impact (I and II), classes in Financial Management (Bankruptcy Court), Domestic Violence Education and the Job Hunt are also offered.


  1. A significant benefit of all classes is that they are offered without a timeline, meaning participants are empowered to work at their own pace, and to stop and start as needed. However, please keep in mind that while enforces no timeline, your referral source may have given you a specific time frame in which to complete the class.
  2. Another benefit, one that participants and jurisdictions alike find advantageous, is that a certificate will be issued to the participant immediately upon completion of the class. Best of all, unlike many online academies, there is no additional charge for this certificate.
