Basic Training is offered to new JDOs (1 day to 1 year) and includes the topics mandated by TJPC. Members from the RTO team will also be expected to assist with at least one week-long training per year.

Requirements to become a Juvenile Detention RTO are (1) a recommendation letter from the chief, (2) the ability to miss at most two weeks of work per year (one week of curriculum planning and one week of training), and (3) the ability to complete a Training for Staff Trainers course within the year if not already completed.
