Certification training is required for individuals wishing to deliver NCTI’s PREA curricula. NCTI, in conjunction with the American Probation and Parole Association, presents a three-day course for individuals to achieve this nationally-recognized certification.
NCTI’s PREA Facilitator Certification Training addresses the staff training standards adopted by the Department of Justice (DOJ), and provides agencies with prevention and identification strategies to reduce incidences of staff/offender sexual misconduct. The standards adopted by the DOJ require criminal justice agencies to provide extensive training to staff, volunteers, and auxiliary personnel.
This applies to agencies housing juvenile and adult offenders, including:
- probation residential facilities,
- detention centers,
- jails, and
Additionally, the standards require agencies to adopt policies regarding zero tolerance, incident investigations, appropriate screening, and more.
This 21-hour PREA Facilitator Certification Training, accredited by APPA, is a fast-paced, interactive course that instructs criminal justice professionals to effectively facilitate NCTI’s 8-hour PREA – Preventing Sexual Misconduct Against Offenders curricula.
