California Department of Corrections, Peace Officer Recruitment
CDC is conducting an on-going recruitment drive for Correctional Officers and Medical Technical Assistants (RNs and LVNs).
- Our corrections degree prepares students for employment with local and state public and private correctional facilities.
- A Corrections Academy is required for a detentions officer position.
- Students may also choose to continue their education with a bachelor's degree, which is required for a Deputy Probation Officer position.
See "Required Courses" for more information.
Students should be aware that prior felony convictions are disqualifying. Prior substance abuse (including marijuana) and other disqualifiers may apply in specific positions related to law enforcement or forensics.
