Manager/Administrator Core Course

STC certification # 0854-1923

This 80-hour skill-building course was designed by the Board of State and Community Corrections for individuals assigned to manager or administrator positions in a local correctional setting (e.g., probation, juvenile hall, county jail, or city jail) participating in the Standards and Training for Corrections (STC) Program.

First priority is given to STC-eligible managers and administrators who are required to complete the Manager/Administrator Core Course (MACC) within one year of their first appointment to a manager or administrator position. Experienced managers or administrators who are not required to take the course may also participate in MACC on a space-available basis.
