NSA Jail Correspondence Training Programs

Effective October 1, 2023, we will be ending the NSA Jail Officers and 1st & 2nd Line Supervisors Correspondence Training courses. 

Due to reduction in sales, the National Sheriffs’ Association has decided to pause the Jail Correspondence Training Programs. Until that time, and based on available inventory, please contact either bdossey@sheriffs.org or esimpson@sheriffs.org  if you wish to place an order.  

Completion of the program (passing both the Chapter Tests and Final Exam) must be done by July 1, 2024.  


Thousands of students have graduated from the Jail Officer's Training Program and the First/Second Line Supervisor's Training Program, and the success of these programs continues to flourish. From the volume of informational requests received daily about these programs, we anticipate continued growth as public safety/criminal justice agencies become increasingly aware of the ongoing training needed to carry out their duties.
