Corrections

Courses designed to train individuals to work successfully and effectively in a correctional setting are available through the TEEX Corrections Academy. Providing affordable blended learning experiences for aspiring and advancing correctional officers, classes include physical skills training and self-paced online learning. Training provides the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively carry out duties and maintain control within a jail environment including basic self-defense and inmate handling techniques. Other course topics include interpersonal communications in the correctional setting, inmate rights and privileges, use of force, suicide detection and prevention, inmate health, and objective jail classification. Texas peace officers can acquire basic jail certification through the Basic County Corrections course, which meets the training requirements of the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement and provides preparation for the state-licensing exam. Higher-level courses provide more advanced, in-depth training.
