Bankruptcy Post-Filing Class Online

Innovo Program

Post-Bankruptcy Filing Class

Welcome to INNOVO, CENTS’ online personal financial management instructional course. (Innovo is latin for “to renew.”)

Please note we cannot issue you a certificate if you are filing in North Carolina or Alabama. Please see the United States Trustee website if you are filing in one of those states.


    If you do not have a bankruptcy case number, please do not take this course yet. The INNOVO online course is approximately 3 hours long and costs $20 for single filers and $25 for joint filers. You can pay with a credit card, checking account or PayPal account.
 You can complete the course at your leisure; you do not need to complete it all in one sitting. 
Upon completion of this online course, you will be asked to fill out a certificate registration form. After you have filled this out, a certificate of course completion will be emailed to you within three days. When you complete the course, you will have another opportunity to list an email where you want us to send your certificate. You will want to check the spam/junk folders of that email as well when you are done with the course.
    A bankruptcy filer must take :

    1. A credit counseling class BEFORE he or she files AND
    2. A financial education class AFTER he or she files.
  3. Innovo is the financial education class to be taken AFTER filing bankruptcy and AFTER you have a case number. If you have not yet filed and do not have a case number, do not take Innovo yet. If you need to take the pre-filing credit counseling class, you can take it from us here.
  4. You may experience technical difficulties with the video. If this happens follow the easy instructions to switch to the text version and take the class that way. It doesn’t matter if you take the video or text version or a combination of the two.IMPORTANT: To help ensure the video works:
    • You must have the current version of Flash Player. This course uses flash to play the videos, and you will not be able to view the course with older versions of the Flash Player. You can get it for free from their website here : http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer
    • You must accept cookies from this site. Cookies are usually on by default, but if you have changed your security settings in your browser or disabled them, you will need to create an exception for this course as it utilizes cookies to track your progress.

  5. Please note we can only provide limited support directly related to this online class. If the video is not working for you, you will have to switch to the text based version. We will not be able to troubleshoot video issues with your computer and/or the program. We will refund your payment if you are unable to complete the course and get your certificate elsewhere.
