CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE

May 15, 2020

The National Criminal Justice Training Center is continuing to work in concert with the Department of Justice, our partner organizations, and host agencies to determine plans for onsite training throughout the United States amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

What is happening with onsite training schedules?
NCJTC is working with host sites and grantors to determine the best approach to holding onsite classes. At the present time, states are receiving new guidelines and as a result, we are rescheduling onsite training classes to take place this year and in 2021. Please know there are many factors that must be taken into consideration. It is our plan to safely deliver training to you, however we ask for your patience as schedules may need to be adjusted accordingly.

When will decisions be made to run scheduled classes?
For our fee-based courses, decisions to run scheduled classes will continue to be made 30 days prior to the training date. Our decision to run grant funded classes will be made in concert with funding agencies. We ask that you refrain from making travel plans until you have been notified about the status of classes you have registered for. You will find the most up-to-date schedule at ncjtc.org/upcoming.

If I am registered for a training that is now canceled, what do I need to do?
Your next steps are to cancel any travel and lodging reservations you have made. While we cannot control any costs you may incur with your mode of transportation, we will do what we can to help avoid any lodging costs if we have a contract with the hotel that you have reserved for training. If you need documentation about the class cancellation, please contact us at info@ncjtc.org or (855)866-2582 to discuss your needs.

Will there be new guidelines for onsite training?
Currently, NCJTC is taking the necessary steps to comply with new CDC and state guidelines to conduct onsite training. When classroom training resumes, considerations will include social distancing, personal protective equipment and sanitation. Your health and safety are- of the utmost importance to us.

Does NCJTC offer online training?
Yes! NCJTC has always offered a robust library of recorded webinars, e-learning courses and live webinars. Over the past decade, we have embraced online learning and have exceptional tools and capabilities to provide training virtually. We are committed to providing you with new ways to receive the training you need when you are ready. We invite you to view our online offerings at ncjtc.org/on-demand.

Where can I find information about COVID-19 (coronavirus)?
Thank you for putting your continued trust in NCJTC and for all you are doing for our communities. Please email us at info@ncjtc.org or call (855)866-2582 with any questions you may have. We are happy to help however possible.

Stay safe and healthy,

Continuing NCJTC Operations

March 20, 2020

The National Criminal Justice Training Center (NCJTC) is working in concert with the Department of Justice, our partner organizations and host agencies. We are in the process of rescheduling national training and technical assistance events in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. During this unprecedented period, we are not shutting down operations, but rather ramping up our considerable resources in the area of eLearning to continue to provide the people we serve with training in areas of greatest need.

Last year we trained over 21,000 students and are leveraging the considerable resources we have available to increase both the number of available offerings and our capacity to deliver new material currently under development. We invite you to review our extensive eLearning offerings, our two NCJTC On Demand Catalogs, as well as look for new opportunities in the coming days.

Finally, we would encourage you to continue to visit our website at NCJTC.org for updates on both scheduled training events and available eLearning opportunities. Though our offices are currently closed, we are working remotely and will respond to your inquiries in a timely manner either by phone or email. As always, you may contact us at (855) 866-2582 or at info@ncjtc.org.

Fox Valley Technical College and The National Criminal Justice Training Centers response to the COVID-19 virus

March 12, 2020

To our valued customers and students:

Fox Valley Technical College (FVTC) and the National Criminal Justice Training Center (NCJTC) have been closely monitoring the escalating risks posed to our students, faculty, and staff by the COVID-19 virus and have made the determination to cancel or postpone all training events through April 17, 2020.

The World Health Organization has declared the COVID-19 a pandemic and urged that everyone take aggressive action to curb the spread of the virus. At least 24 states and the District of Columbia have declared a state of emergency in response to the outbreak. The CDC’s website states:
CDC does not generally issue advisories or restrictions for travel within the United States. However, cases of COVID-19 have been reported in many states, and some areas are experiencing community spread of the disease. Crowded travel settings, like airports, may increase your risk of exposure to COVID-19, if there are other travelers with COVID-19. There are several things you should consider when deciding whether it is safe for you to travel.

One of the factors highlighted in the travel guidance section outlined above, includes the following statement:
Do you have a plan for taking time off from work or school, in case you get exposed to, or are sick with, COVID-19?
If you have close contact with someone with COVID-19 during travel, you may be asked to stay home to self-monitor and avoid contact with others for up to 14 days after travel. If you become sick with COVID-19, you may be unable to go to work or school until you’re considered noninfectious. You will be asked to avoid contact with others (including being in public places) during this period of infectiousness.


The people we train as well as the majority of our instructors are criminal justice professionals who do not have the ability to work from home. They are front-line police officers, prosecutors, probation parole officers, and child protective services workers who are expected to report for duty. We have received calls from both instructors and students that their agencies will not allow them to either travel out of state or to states where there have been declarations of emergency. Under the current conditions it is neither responsible or cost-effective to continue with planned training events that we can neither completely fill or effectively staff.

Our suspension of travel and training is not taken lightly and we understand the ramifications of doing so, but believe that doing otherwise would jeopardize the health and safety of our students, staff and instructors. We plan to closely monitor the situation on a daily basis and make accommodations wherever possible. For example, we are looking to leverage our significant online learning resources to determine if we can replace or supplement some of our scheduled training and technical assistance with eLearning opportunities. We also plan to conduct planned in-person meetings with virtual meetings.

Our management team will be communicating on a daily basis to determine if we need to extend the length of this temporary suspension of training, and we will be working with all of our grantors, host sites, students, and faculty to reschedule training as soon as possible.

In the meantime, we are available for calls with all affected organizations and people, and we are happy to provide additional documentation as needed. If you have questions, please review the FAQs below, call (855)866-2582, or email info@ncjtc.org.
