The National Institute for Jail Operations (NIJO) developed the Detention & Corrections Online Training Academy (DACOTA) to provide detention and correctional administrators, supervisors and line level officers with easy access to interactive and engaging online jail training.  DACOTA curriculum is based on applicable case law to ensure course content is defensible and current to what the courts will require of those who operate detention and correctional facilities. 

To ensure the course material is taught and understood clearly, DACOTA incorporates videos, choice-based scenarios and other interaction requiring the involvement and comprehension verification of those being trained.  Subjects are selectively taught by the most recognized and established detention and correctional experts in the United States.  Most courses are one hour in length, unless otherwise noted.  All NIJO - DACOTA curriculum is approved for NIJO Professional Certification for NCCE, NCCS, and NCCO certification levels.

After each course, testing is provided as documented proof of completion and individual content comprehension.   Certificates can easily be printed and administrations have the ability to access and print multiple reports for individuals and entire agencies.

Some of the benefits for participating agencies who rely on NIJO’s online training curriculum include:

  • Accessibility.  Training can be accessed anytime, anywhere to address immediate needs and issues or as an ongoing in-service training library.
  • Less Workflow Disruption.  Officers and staff can receive targeted, quality training regardless of shift time and location.  
  • Training Documentation.  Individuals and agencies can manage and track the completion of each course for proof of completion. 
  • Maximize Time. Self-directed online training typically reduces instructional time by 45%.
  • Agency Scalability.   Customize the DACOTA library of courses specific to your agency’s training needs.
  • Affordable Cost Savings.  The cost of live training, including travel and lodging expenses, staffing issues while out of office, and other labor concerns can be greatly reduced by using online training.
