It's the Deputy Secretary's policy that all employees participate in training and staff development programs for the benefit of all concerned. OJJ training programs provide employees with specialized training needed to address the specific needs of staff and the youth in our care. Training plans incorporate the specific requirements set forth by applicable accreditation standards, YS policy requirements, the Health Care Policies for Youth and job specific training needs. The plan also provides procedures for ongoing evaluations of all pre-service, in-service and specialized training.
The staff development program includes annual in-service training, Louisiana Model (LAMOD) Training, ORM, Civil Service Courses, CPTP Classes, online training and Correspondence (Self Study) in-service correspondence courses. It is designed to enhance and promote employees careers through continuing training and educational opportunities.
