Corrections Academy to be Offered in October



The Kalamazoo Law Enforcement Training Center at KVCC is offering a four-week-long Corrections Academy that will run from Oct. 3 to 28, 2011.

The Corrections Academy is a Michigan Sheriffs Coordinating and Training Council-approved, 160-hour certification program for correctional personnel supervising inmates in county jails. This 4-week program will focus on obtaining the skills necessary to maintain the safety and security of a correctional facility. Due to the limited space for each academy, candidate evaluations will be conducted to determine admittance into the program.

To be eligible for academy consideration, participants must: Be at least 18 years of age; possess a high school diploma, or equivalent; apply to become a KVCC student; successfully meet minimum scores on KVCC placement tests; and have no prior felony convictions (including expunged convictions). For more information or to register, contact Larry Belen, Director, Kalamazoo Law Enforcement Training Center, 269-353-1261.
