Training Requirements Enabling Creditors to File Electronically:
In coordination with the PACER service center, the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Montana has provided links to computer-based electronic learning modules which will allow creditors to meet the training requirements of the District. The electronic learning modules (hereafter referred to as ELMs) can be found Training & Manuals.
Once the ELMs have been viewed, creditors will be required to contact Mary Palmer at (406) 497-1246 or Patti Mahoney at (406) 497-1244, to obtain access to the ECF training database. The Court will provide details regarding the required training exercises.
Upon completion of the training exercises, creditors are asked to complete the Limited Filing User Registration Form for Creditor Filer, and email the form to: MTB_Registration@mtb.uscourts.gov. Upon receipt of the registration form, the Court will promptly issue the creditor a login and password to the ECF live database.
Creditors that have received ECF training from a different Bankruptcy or District Court other than Montana shall be issued a login and password to Montana’s ECF live database. Creditors are required to complete the Limited Filing User Registration Form for Creditor Filer. After meeting the necessary requirements, a login and password shall be issued to Montana’s ECF live database.
