Basic Corrections Officer
Special Function/Basic Correction Officer: The training provides an excellent foot-in-the-door approach to a law enforcement career. Areas of study include legal subjects, patrol and criminal investigation procedures, arrest control techniques, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)/First Aid. Successful completion qualifies students to apply to work as a correctional officer in any county jail or state prison facility and become qualified to enter the Law Enforcement Officer training portion of the academy.
This specialization is delivered face-to-face and may contain online components.
Students must be 21 years of age or older at the time of entrance and pass a background investigation.
Assessment: Basic reading (70%), basic math (70%), grammar (70%), and writing (70%). Call (435) 750-3188 to schedule an appointment. A $35 assessment fee will apply. A study guide may be obtained from the Bridgerland Technical College Bookstore or accessed online here. Take a practice test here. Once the student has cleared assessment, he/she is eligible to register and will receive instructions on how to complete a background investigation.
Applications due no later than Nov. 1.
During training, students are required to wear a police academy approved uniform and physical fitness uniform. The uniforms can be purchased at the Bridgerland Technical College Bookstore. Students also must purchase a course manual and other equipment, which is in addition to tuition. This information will be provided to the students.
Duties and daily activities will vary by local, state, or federal agencies. The continued demand for public safety makes employment steady, interesting, and rewarding. The higher the population, the more job opportunities will be available. Individuals who are bilingual, female, have miliary experience, and/or seek additional education are highly sought after. Due to retirement and turnover, layoffs are rare.
