NEW! Academy Chat Monthly Forums

Beginning November 2023, NIC will host a monthly, 30-minute Academy Chat to facilitate dialogue and continuous learning among training professionals and others who are interested in improving the training options at their agencies.

Hosted by the NIC Academy Division, the chats will be conducted in an online open format that allows participants to pose questions both to the hosts and other attendees about current and emergent topics in training that are relevant to local, state, tribal, federal, adult, and juvenile correctional fields. Staff can hone soft skills, like empathy and verbal communication, as they engage in peer-based learning with colleagues from around the country. The chats are open to staff from all agencies and all positions, allowing any corrections personnel with an interest in training the opportunity to attend.
