The National Curriculum & Training Institute, Inc. (NCTI) has been developing and providing a wide variety of staff development trainings since 1981. NCTI has assisted thousands of agencies through staff trainings covering topics such as ethics, generations, communication, preventing sexual misconduct, leadership, teamwork, dealing with stress, and training for new managers. Thousands of criminal justice and community corrections practitioners have been trained in NCTI’s workshop Preventing Sexual Misconduct Against Offenders since 2007.
The Personality Assessment Instrument, Real Colors, is incorporated into all of NCTI’s staff trainings. The Real Colors Personality Instrument enables staff to have a better understanding of themselves and others as it relates to their temperament and behavior. It opens lines of communication and understanding.
NCTI and The American Probation Parole Association (APPA) have joined in collaboration to provide Preventing Staff Sexual Misconduct Against Offenders workshops to probation, parole and community supervision departments across the United States. The Facilitator Certification Training and the staff workshop Preventing Staff Sexual Misconduct Against Offenders are accredited by APPA.
The American Probation and Parole Association is an international association composed of individuals primarily from the U.S. and Canada actively involved with probation, parole and community-based corrections, in both adult and juvenile sectors. All levels of government including local, state/provincial and federal associated with the executive, judicial and legislative branches of government are counted among its constituents. By taking the initiative, APPA has grown to become the voice for thousands of probation and parole practitioners including line staff, supervisors and administrators. Educators, volunteers and concerned citizens with an interest in criminal and juvenile justice are also among APPA’s members. APPA will continue to effectively provide services to its constituents. The association represents a strong, unified voice for the field of community corrections.
