This 15-credit-hour job training program satisfies the Michigan Corrections Officer Training Council (MCOTC) educational requirement for corrections officers. Students must achieve a minimum 2.0 grade in each course to receive certification of successful completion from MCC. To be considered for employment by Michigan Department of Corrections, students must have a high school diploma or GED and pass a written Civil Service exam, a physical fitness exam, a personal interview, a background investigation and a drug screening.
Students with a criminal record should consult the State of Michigan to verify that they are eligible to work in this field. Students are encouraged to meet with an MCC counselor/advisor prior to starting this program for help with the verification process.
Students interested in receiving an associate degree or certificate should see a counselor.
