This skill set is designed for students who wish to seek careers in the corrections field of Criminal Justice.  Students seeking this skill set will take classes designed to prepare them for careers in local, state, and federal detention centers.  Students seeking this skill set will also find themselves meeting basic educational requirements for employment in some local and state juvenile intervention facilities, as well as local and state diversion programs.  Students completing this skill set will meet the educational requirements for admittance into the State of Michigan corrections academy.  Students should be aware, however, that employment in the correctional field and entrance to corrections academies require an extensive background investigation and certain criminal convictions could prevent acceptance into such professions.  Persons with either felony or misdemeanor convictions should check with potential employers to determine employment restrictions.
