Corrections professionals play important roles in public safety and criminal justice. Correctional Officers provide security and confinement for the nation's criminal offenders. Probation/Parole Officers conduct case management and assist in the movement of prisoners, direct individuals to rehabilitation programs and apprehend violators when public safety is in jeopardy. Criminal Justice Technicians assist institutional and field officers in a variety of duties within the Department of Corrections. With experience, Criminal Justice Technicians may transition to officer positions. These positions provide secure, rewarding positions with excellent benefits and retirement.

The KPC corrections certificate programs provide the academic background required for success in entry-level corrections positions, including instruction in criminal and restorative justice systems, courses in oral and written behavior. The programs are appropriate for sworn (those enforcement personnel without powers to arrest to carry firearms.) They prepare new applicants for entry-level positions in corrections and provide occupational training for current DOC employees. Graduates will be competitive with non-Alaskans for corrections jobs within Alaska and in other states. These corrections certificate programs have been developed in active collaboration and partnership with the DOC.

In addition to this Undergraduate Certificate in Corrections, KPC also offers a Corrections Occupational Endorsement Certificate.

Don't forget, general classes that are required for this degree can be taken through any of KPC's campuses or online.
