STC Programs & Services
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

*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.
