The Crater Criminal Justice Training Academy (CCJTA) primary online training vendor is the Training Response Network
TRN content is developed by national subject matter experts, and in partnership with the Thomas & Means Law Firm, the courses offer the latest trends within the law enforcement, corrections and criminal justice fields, providing individuals the opportunity to hone their knowledge and skills. Each course is derived from either a classroom-based course (either 4 or 8 hours) and then converted into an online format that is self-paced.
All courses include quizzes and assessments which are highly randomized from individual to individual to avoid each individual getting the exact same quiz/test to better test and aid in your learning.
Progressive leaders in law enforcement and corrections know that a well-trained staff: reduces personal and agency liability, protects an officer or an agency from negative news coverage and increases both officer and citizen safety. These same leaders also know there’s no such thing as “enough” training. Changes are constant in federal and state laws, technology and police tactics. Societal pressures are mounting. Annual in-service is only just the starting point for an agency.
TRN’s courses provide agency leaders a very easy path to promote and invest in constant and consistent training from individual to individual by making each course accessible via MDT’s, laptop/desktop, (Mobile apps) smartphones and tablets for iPhone and Android operating systems.
