Corrections Officer Training

Become the light in a dark place

Macomb’s corrections officer training program provides a leading option for officers - and those considering a career in the field - to complete all required training and certification while preparing to be a well-rounded and successful professional.

Offered twice annually at the College’s Clinton Township campus, the program features expert instructors who bring real-world knowledge and experience to educational areas including correctional law, booking procedures, report writing, use of force, fire safety, ethics, interpersonal communication and cultural diversity. Participants will learn how to run a safe and effective facility while managing their own emotions.

If you’re an individual interested in entering the corrections field, completing your training at Macomb will help you stand out as a potential job candidate. You’ll make valuable connections with industry professionals who may be in position to hire you. Plus, many promotions within law enforcement are easier to attain with jail experience.

For local departments, Macomb’s program is competitively priced and scheduled to provide more flexibility for your department’s training budget.

If you’re smart, upbeat, and have an interest in law enforcement that goes beyond being a police officer, Macomb’s corrections officer training program presents a great opportunity for a rewarding career.
