The aim of the CCO Training course is to equip newly recruited officers with the skills and knowledge to be effective in their new role.
The initial course and workplace assessments cover interviewing skills, report writing, case management, risk assessment, case planning, parole requirements and skills to deal with different offender groups. Officers attend the 8 week face-to-face Community Corrections Officer Training at the Academy, as well as a 4 week placement period. This is followed by up to 10 months of on-the-job training.
After training and successful completion of the workplace assessment tasks, participants achieve the CSC40115 Certificate IV in Correctional Practice.
