Corrections Basic Training Academy

The Sinclair College Criminal Justice Training Academy offers the Ohio Peace Officer Training Commission’s (OPOTC or OPOTA) 148-Hour Full Service Jail Corrections Basic Training Course. We offer the 4-week course three (3) times a year, or more if needed.

This training meets the requirement of Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) § 109:2-9-02 regarding Corrections training for full-service jail personnel. This training must be taken, and the State Certification Exam passed, within 12- months of appointment.

Please Note: currently, according to OPOTC rules, only those actively employed as jail or corrections officers are permitted to attend the course and must be sponsored by their department.
