​Programs For ​Inmates

Numerous educational courses are available to inmates at the Maryland Correctional Training Center. They can earn their GED and take vocational courses in electrical wiring, carpentry, engine and auto body repair, plumbing, masonry, and office technology.

Inmates can also participate in the correctional enterprises program that allows them to work repairing and remanufacturing cartridges for laser printers, copiers, and fax machines. They also produce corrugated cartons and office work partitions.

The restorative justice program, Public Safety Works (PSW), provides employment skills as well as an opportunity for offenders to give back to the community they have harmed.

PSW is also a bridge to meaningful employment for the inmates, helping develop basic everyday skills needed to be an effective employee such as learning to respect a supervisor and working as a team.
