Soft skills are needed for incarcerated individuals as they return to society and seek employment. Educating offenders and helping them learn how to interact with people and how to work as a team is a great tool in that can be utilized by everyone in the workforce.

Very good information and a ton of resources shown in the course

This training reinforces how some correctional programs offered outside CI help make incarcerated workers more ready to succeed with us on our teams. It makes me think about the power of continuing that kind of training inside CI. We have to think about the cost of that paid time not making products to fill customers' orders, as well as how it might make work time more productive.

Very good material. I wish there was more depth to the different training courses mentioned within this training course, but was still good information to learn.

I enjoyed the course. zit was easy to follow and provided a lot of resource information.

The information provided in this course was an excellent review of resources available for bringing soft skills training into the Correctional Industries setting and the positive benefits of soft skills training for reentry prospects for offenders. I wish that more time had been spent on explaining how to develop and integrate this training into a typical CI operation.

I would like to have seen more information on setting up some programs and examples of programs running certifying soft skills. As the course mentions this is harder than hard or technical skills to document. I would like to see something universal or an agency such as NCIA take a lead in providing this. This would allow for consistency and credentialing of these skills. Thank you
