MILITARY POLICE . 19-14-1 35 Soldiers seeking certifcation are highly encouraged to participate in small study groups so that they may better understand the materials. It is also recommended that they request the assistance of coworkers who have previously taken the examination and may be able to provide additional helpful information. I was one of the frst few corrections specialists to take the certifcation examination, and I was certainly the frst at my skill level to take the examination for CCO. Luckily for me, three others in my squad were also studying for the same test at the same time. During downtime at work, we reviewed what we had learned in the textbooks and we discussed our various viewpoints on the subjects. In addition, I sacrifced many personal hours (holidays and other days off) to prepare for the examination. Conclusion B ecoming a certifed corrections professional is a rewarding experience. There are only a small number of corrections professionals throughout the United States who complete the certifcation process, and we represent our units in positive ways on a daily basis. We consider the corrections feld more than just a job—we consider it our profession, and we want to be professionals. To me, becoming certifed wasn't just something to do; it was something that I felt I had to do in order to be a subject matter expert. I encourage all corrections professionals to take this step and achieve corrections certifcation. Endnotes: 1 "Professional Certifcation," ACA Web site, , accessed on 27 January 2014. 2 Ibid.
