Corrections Academy

Corrections Academy (COR) This is a one-year Advanced Training program for Public Safety completers. In addition, a senior who has not attended MOCC or is from another MOCC program may apply by application. Corrections students who successfully complete each module of the academy and pass the final exam will be certified as a Local Corrections Officer. The academy curriculum consists of book-work and physical training. In order to be hired by a Sheriff’s Office, students must also successfully pass the Michigan Sheriffs’ Coordinating and Training Council written examination, proctored by EMPCO, which tests students’ mental fitness in the areas of reading comprehension, writing, and situational reasoning. Students must also successfully pass the Local Corrections Officer Physical Ability Test (LCOPAT) to be hired by a Sheriff’s Office. This is the only high school-level corrections academy in Michigan sanctioned by the Michigan Sheriffs’ Coordinating & Training Council. Upon successful completion of all requirements, students may be employed at a county jail as a Corrections Officer. Further details about the academy requirements can be found at www.misctc.org. Please Note: This program has required training hours and is typically taken during a student's senior year as part of our Advanced Learning Opportunities. For students wanting to attend an Advance Learning Opportunity can contact their local high school counselor to learn more about MOCC's application process.
