online trainingThe Age of E-Courses

  • Corrections professionals completed 44,439 e-courses during Fiscal Year (FY) 2013, which is a 56 percent increase over FY 2012 and a 170 percent increase over FY 2011.
  • The number of users who logged in at least once to one of NIC’s learning centers was 44,399, a 159 percent increase over FY 2012 and a 234 percent increase over FY 2011.
  • The number of users who completed Your Role Responding to Sexual Abuse was 19,098. This course was the most popular e-course of FY 2013.

The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) continues to increase the development of corrections professionals through self-paced e-courses.  Over 40,000 corrections professionals logged in to the NIC Learning Center during FY '13.  Current categories for e-course training include computer skills, corrections topics, leadership, management, and team building. All federal, state, local, and non-profit corrections professionals, including frontline staff, supervisors, and executives can benefit from taking NIC's e-courses. These on-demand trainings can be launched immediately from any location with Internet access, making them an ideal fit in the busy schedules of full-time correctional staff. The flexibility of NIC's e-courses also means that users don't have to have to complete all of their courses in one sitting. Staff who elect to take e-courses can pause and resume their learning as needed through course bookmarking and will receive a certificate upon completion of each course. You can go to http://nic.learn.com to create a free account and begin taking courses today. 

Of course, there are other benefits. Because NIC’s e-courses are available at no charge to students, local jurisdictions can save money on training. This helps staff secure annual training hours and stay current on trending topics without the added costs of travel and registration or the headaches of having to find time to attend the training.  

Each e-course also provides a certificate of completion, which is automatically emailed and archived permanently in each user account. 

NIC e-courses are available at http://nic.learn.com. Frontline staff can access e-courses via the Frontline Learning Center at http://nic.learn.com/frontline.
