In-Service Training

Once employed by an agency and certified, a Corrections Officer (full time or part time) must annually complete at least twenty (20) hours of In-Service Training in order to maintain certification. Below is a list of approved MSCTC In-Service Training Topics. A Corrections Officer must demonstrate training in at least three topics per year, with no more than ten (10) hours per year of firearms training.

Requests for adding other In-Service Training Topics may be submitted to the Council for their consideration.

Please Note: Completing the 160 hour Local Corrections Officer Academy or the 96 hour Re-Entry/Core Training program will satisfy the In-Service training requirement for the calendar year in which the Academy or Re-Entry/Core Training is completed.
