Tennessee Correction Academy


Technology and Training

 

The Tennessee Correction Academy has the capability of broadcasting training via satellite to various sites across the State of Tennessee. This innovative training allows the academy to broadcast training programs from an academy instructor to a classroom at a satellite location. By utilizing this method, we are able to save employee travel expenses and reduce the time away from work.


The academy maintains a video conferencing library of a number of videos produced over the years from the National Institute of Corrections, the U.S. Department of Justice, and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. Many of these may be loaned or rebroadcast via the TDOC's video conferencing link.


Work Site Training Coordinators:


Please contact Betty Allison, Assistant Director of Training, to schedule your employees' viewing of these teleconferences. On-site training credit for these programs may be coordinated through the academy records office. Please see the staff services webpage for contact numbers and email addresses.
