To work as a corrections officer, candidates generally must meet
the minimum age requirement-usually 18 or 21-and have a high school
diploma or its equivalent. Individuals without a high school
education may be considered for employment if they have qualifying
work experience, such as probation and parole experience.
Applicants for corrections officer positions must be U.S. citizens
and have no felony convictions.
