Approval provides significant opportunity for California officers to earn 100 percent of required training online for continuing education credit

SAN FRANCISCO — CorrectionsOne.com, the leading online resource for corrections officers and administrators, is proud to announce that CorrectionsOne Academy, the premier online training platform for correctional facilities, can now be used to meet required annual training hours outlined by the State of California Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) – Standards and Training Division.

CorrectionsOne Academy is focused solely on the field of corrections and is now a provider of 69 courses certified by the BSCC’s Standards and Training for Corrections (STC). These courses can be used toward completing required annual hourly compliance requirements. Additionally, agencies can use their allotted STC funds towards the annual subscription cost of CorrectionsOne Academy, which is significantly lower than instructor-led classroom training.

Certified courses can be taken using Standards and Training for Corrections (STC) program funds and applied to department training accounts to supplement the annual subscription costs for CorrectionsOne Academy.

CorrectionsOne Academy offers facilities cost-effective access to top-quality training for an annual subscription based on agency size. Topics range from use of force to mental health in jails, leadership, officer safety and more. The Academy also includes features to track offline training, upload department-specific courses and policies, and produce accurate reports for facility leadership. The result is a comprehensive solution for every aspect of training a facility oversees.

“The approval of CorrectionsOne Academy in California is exciting news for us as well as correctional facilities and sheriff’s offices in the state,” said Alex Ford, CEO of CorrectionsOne. “As a California-based company, this new accreditation is particularly significant. Further, the rapid growth of the Academy thus far is a testament to the importance of a budget-friendly, quality training solution for agencies across the country.”
