Correctional Training: Institution Familiarization. Part 1: Background Material.
Bureau of Prisons (Dept. of Justice), Washington, DC.
Designed to assist training coordinators in the initial institution familiarization training for new employees in correctional institutions, this manual consists of two parts: this document (Part I), which is the training coordinator's guide, and the training program (Part II - CE 017 287). In a general introduction the advantages of these course materials are outlined, stressing (1) how their use within the first forty hours after an employee's entry on duty insures standardized, uniform training of staff at all federal prisons; (2) the instructor's capability of being flexible and creative in his approach because of the variety in types of training materials; (3) that tests are included to measure whether or not the training objectives have been met and that remedial lesson plans are provided to correct low performance in any area. A recommended sequence is given for the four subject areas (introduction, security, working with inmates, and emergency) which are covered in Part II. The major parts of this guide are as follow: a lesson plan on evaluation objectives to be met by the training coordinator; a lesson outline, focusing on how to write, give, and use evaluative instruments; practice and written tests for all four subjects in Part II, including instructions for their use and answer keys; a lesson plan to develop local training materials to meet unique local institutional needs while being consistent with the overall goals and tone of this program; and an outline for remedial training evaluation and design.
