Adult Corrections Officer Recruit is the entry-level in the series initially consisting of training in adult corrections officer work, and the independent performance of custody and control work consistent with training completed. Initially, incumbents receive formal on-the-job training in basic work methods and procedures, and work with higher grade corrections officers and receive specific instruction. In the beginning, independent security and custodial duties are performed at less difficult posts.
