Recruits in Class 123 traded in their uniforms for physical training attire and spent time this week learning a variety of defense skills.

Class 123 is completing week four of pre-service training, and as we follow along with this group it seems fitting to give a shout out to the training specialists at the Staff Training Academy (STA) and all the teammates who support this important work.

STA is the place where new teammates learn how to be effective corrections professionals – from classroom learning, hands-on skills and the example their training instructors set. Many careers and long-lasting friendships have begun here. No matter the role or the facility, STA has touched every NDCS teammate in some way! #Class123
