Academy Blog | Train Better. Stay Safe.
Recently, CorrectionsOne Academy built a new tool to help facilities determine their cost savings by transitioning part of their required annual training to an online learning solution. Our ROI calculator estimates your current spend on training versus how much you can save on online corrections training with CorrectionsOne Academy’s platform.
The goal for this estimation tool is to demonstrate how moving part of your annual training to an online solution can positively impact your bottom line and reduce budget spending.
With our potential savings estimator, your facility can:*
- Evaluate the cost/benefit of purchasing an online solution
- Determine the time saved on tracking and reporting training
- Compare existing training procedures to our features & functionality
*Disclaimer: To receive your potential savings calculation, you must complete a demo of CorrectionsOne Academy with a sales representative.
CorrectionsOne Academy recently released new training courses to add to your training program. These courses, and 100s more, can now be assigned to your officers. With CorrectinonsOne Academy, facilities can assign training, track policy compliance, simply onboard new hires and more! Check out the new courses we’ve rolled our below.
New Full-Length Courses
Building Financial Strength in First Responder Families
1 HOUR – You have a great career as a first responder and you are making good money. How do you ensure you can retire with what you need? Many of us do not know the answer to that question. We often plan our budgets and spending, but how many first responder personnel sit down and plan for retirement? It is imperative to start planning for retirement early in your career. This course will provide a basic understanding of financial tools and requirements so that you can achieve economic health. Having a plan is critical to help reduce stress, alleviate ethical issues, maintain security clearances, and stop living paycheck to paycheck.
Maintaining Boundaries for Corrections Staff
1 HOUR – This course is designed to inform anyone that deals with or has contact with incarcerated inmates about manipulation. Inmates will go to great lengths to convince staff to abandon professionalism, common sense and their better judgment in order to violate professional boundaries. This course will discuss these main topics: knowing where you are, knowing who you are dealing with, knowing how inmates target and manipulate staff and learning safeguards and methods to resist the inmate manipulator.
Managing Special Inmate Populations
1 HOUR – This is a course about special inmate populations – the inmates that are not in the ‘mainstream’ inmate general population. Correctional officers are a type of specialist – they handle inmates with unique problems. Some inmates require more attention than others, and knowledge of these inmates is power. By properly handling them, you and your agency decrease the chances of being found liable in a lawsuit. This course gives you the tools that you need to safely supervise several special types of inmates. Correctional facilities are grappling with issues concerning inmates who are mentally ill, suicidal, are LGTBI, or are housed in isolation. Issues that are often the result of these populations include increased risk of suicide, assault of other inmates or staff, and harmful effects of isolation.
