Offender Training 


The open book Offender test requires that you score 70% or more for a passing grade. You may be re-tested until you receive a passing grade if you wish.
Your certificate of participation and completion may be presented for consideration to your Lawyer, Case Worker and/or the Judge in your case.
Having a Certificate of Completion shows that you participated in a Cognitive Awareness Life Skills program designed to initiate a desire to change thinking and behavior.
The persons who supervise your activities, including your Judge, may have a favorable view of your personal endeavor to take steps toward changing your behavior.
