STC Blasts, Bulletins & Notices
Annual Training Program
Annual training is mandatory for all full participation eligible staff that have completed core training. Annual training is specialized or refresher training that develops or enhances job-related skills. Flexibility is permitted in course content and method of instruction to meet changing conditions and local needs.
Program Concept: Annual training should be developed or selected based on organizational or individual needs related to the employee’s job. Due to the complexity of job assignments, some staff may need training that far exceeds minimum state standards. Participating departments are encouraged to exceed the minimum training standards when necessary to realize the goal of increased job skills and competency.
The table below lists the various employment classifications eligible for STC participation and the minimum number of hours of annual training that must be attended after completion of core training.
Journey Probation Officer 40 hours
Journey Juvenile Corrections Officer 24 hours
Journey Adult Corrections Officer 24 hours
Probation Supervisor 40 hours
Supervising Juvenile Corrections Officer 40 hours
Supervising Adult Corrections Officer 24 hours
Manager* 40 hours
Administrator* 40 hours
*Managers and administrators of jails or adult institutions may only need to comply with a minimum of 24 annual training hours per year if the participating department has requested a variance to Title 15, CCR, Section 184 (a) (7) and (8) and the variance has been approved by the BSCC.

Modified Community Correctional Facilities (MCCF)
CDCR has entered contracts with the public agencies [California Penal Code, (P.C.) 2910] and private agencies [P.C. 6250] to provide housing, sustenance and supervision for inmates that are eligible for placement in contracted facilities. Inmates are close to their release dates and are low-level offenders.
The Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) is responsible for establishing required minimum training standards for local corrections personnel as well as specifications and standards for local corrections personnel.
Standards and Training for Corrections (STC), a division of the BSCC, provides a standardized, state-coordinated, selections and training system for local corrections personnel [P.C. 6025-6036 and 6040-6044]. The intent of the law is to establish a program designed to improve the skills and raise the level of competence of local corrections personnel in the community correctional facilities.

STC has developed two social networking groups to assist in the exchange of information between STC annual training managers and STC core coordinators and core instructors. The groups were created to promote information sharing throughout the State. It is designed to query other training managers or core coordinators for advice/information related specifically to selection and training issues. The e-groups websites will also contain many other valuable resources geared toward training managers and core coordinators. View more information
