The Jail Manager Certification Commission (JMCC) and the American Jail Association (AJA) promote the concept of voluntary certification of all jail personnel. Certification is one part of a process called credentialing. It focuses specifically on the individual and provides evidence of that individual's competency in the field. Certification signifies and documents the mastery of a strong level of knowledge in a specialized field. It plays a significant role in the elevation of professionalism and provides an opportunity for professional growth by encouraging education which, in turn, fosters effective management practices.

Our certification programs are designed for those individuals who strive to elevate the field of local corrections. We now offer three certification programs which are valid for a period of four years.
AJA Individual Membership is not required. AJA Professional Members are eligible for discounts on CJO, CJM and CCT application fees. IACTP Members are eligible for a discount on the CCT application fee. These prestigious programs provide evidence to your colleagues and community that you have been tested and found to possess a high competency in these levels of corrections.
