Inmate Work & Training Programs

The Inmate Work & Training Programs (IWTP) oversees the Manufacturing, Agribusiness and Logistics (MAL) Division’s designated training facilities: Wynne Computer Recovery, Wynne Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Mountain View Braille.

IWTP staff document inmate participation in on-the-job training (OJT) programs and other job skills training programs; coordinate with the Windham School District to certify OJT programs, create short courses, apprenticeships and vocational courses; ensure availability of job history and certifications to released inmates with MAL Division work experience; and utilize Work Against Recidivism (WAR) data to measure post-release employment success.

Additionally, IWTP provides oversight of the Prison Industries Enhancement (PIE) Certification Program, and acts as the liaison between unit administration and the private business located on a correctional facility and monitors the program to ensure compliance with state and federal guidelines.
