NIC offers online e-courses that are available at your convenience through the NIC Learn Center. We also offer in-person and Blended VILT (in-person and virtual) training throughout each year on specific courses.
NIC has a vast collection of publications produced by its own agency staff about almost every topic in corrections. This includes studies, guides, and evidence-based best practices for agencies of all levels of corrections. In addition, our website also points to many other resources on the internet that might be useful when learning about particular topics.
The mission of NIC is to advance public safety by shaping and enhancing correctional policies and practices through leadership, learning, and innovation.
