COVID-19 Impact on 2020 Thinking for a Change – Training for Trainers Update

 

After speaking with multiple jurisdictions and consulting with officials, the majority of agencies will not be able to host training and/or allow employees to travel to participate in training events held during the next several months.   As a result, the National Institute of Corrections has decided to postpone the Thinking for a Change – Training for Trainers which was scheduled to being July 2020. 

 The program was to be held at the National Corrections Academy, Aurora, Colorado.

 We regret any inconvenience this poses and sincerely hope you will be able to participate on the rescheduled date (to be determined).
