There are 2 court required courses. You must take the pre-filing credit counseling at within 180 days prior to filing and a post-filing financial management course before you will get your discharge.

Yes, you must take a financial (debt) management course from an approved institution after your case is filed, and within 45 days after your first meeting date set with the Trustee in your case. The list of approved institutions is available on the US Trustee website at http://www.justice.gov/ust/eo/bapcpa/ccde/de_approved.htm
