Certification & Training

Trainer Certification

To help ensure the continued development of trainers in adult and juvenile corrections and detention, the International Association of Correctional Training Personnel (IACTP) and the American Jail Association (AJA) have joined together to provide a review and testing process to determine the level of competence and ability of trainers.  This partnership will produce a framework for uniformity of instruction for training personnel, regardless of the geographic location of the work site, or the size of an organization.

The Correctional Trainer Certification Commission (CTCC), made up of IACTP and AJA Commissioners, has developed a two-step process, based on AJA's success with their Certified Jail Manager and Certified Jail Officer programs.  Step one is a review of qualifications and step two is passing an examination.
