The 2018 Training Conference is just around the corner and I am excited to share with you some of the incredible resources and workshops we are bringing to this year's conference.
We have recently partnered with the National PREA Resource Center to bring PREA training to Ohio. Behind the scenes work has taken place to identify PREA specific needs in Ohio’s facilities with the purpose of developing workshops to address your challenges. This year’s conference will include a PREA track geared to meet the needs of PREA compliance managers and facility staff who deal with the day to day challenges of maintaining PREA compliance.
The Southern Poverty Law Center will be conducting a specialized general session on Domestic Hate Groups and Radical Antigovernment Movements. This training will provide a national overview as well as information relevant to our local area. This session will be valuable to all of those working in corrections!
CAAO is also offering a Changing Offender Behavior (COB) training track this year. These trainings are approved by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections, Bureau of Community Sanctions as Certified COB Trainings. Attendees at the conference will have an opportunity to earn 7 COB hours.
Lastly, CAAO has secured Hofbrauhaus Columbus for a networking event immediately following day 1 of the conference. This unique location is directly next the Grand Event Center, with food and entertainment you won't want to miss.
Please visit our conference page for more information and I look forward to seeing you at the Conference!
