    New Employee Training in the MDOC

    New employee training ranges from orientation for contractual employees to 640 hours for officers. New employee training is held at the employee's worksite. The core new employee training is basic correctional training programs that are applicable to all new employees.

    Following this, employees receive additional training depending on the amount of offender contact and specific job assignment they will have. New employees, hired for corrections officer positions, begin their new employee training at the academy and receive an orientation to their worksite later during their training program.

    New employee training is divided into three major categories:

    • Field Agent New Employee Training (Parole and Probation Agents)
    • Officer Recruit New Employee Training (Corrections Officers)
    • Non‑Custody New Employee Training (All Other Employees).
