WILMINGTON — The local community college was selected as a pilot test site for a new education program focused on careers in correctional management.
Cape Fear Community College will soon offer American Jail Association courses — an opportunity for nationwide students to advance in the field of corrections. The collaboration with CFCC and AJA is a significant milestone for enhancing nationwide jail management and correctional officer training standards.
As a leader in community-based education, AJA chose CFCC for its commitment to academic excellence and focus on serving diverse communities, according to a press release.
“We are proud to be selected as the pilot test site for the American Jail Association courses,” CFCC president Jim Morton said in the release. “This partnership reaffirms our commitment to providing accessible and high-quality education that empowers individuals to excel in their careers and positively impact the communities they serve.”
CFCC will host and facilitate pilot test courses designed by AJA, offering a unique opportunity for aspiring and current correctional officers, jail administrators, and law enforcement personnel from any agency in the U.S. The pilot test initiative aims to evaluate and refine course content, ensuring relevance and effectiveness in addressing the evolving challenges of the corrections industry.
CFCC spokesperson Christina Hallingse said the courses have already launched and will continue throughout the year as continuing and technical education courses.
