I'm thinking of becoming a corrections officer, will Marine Corp MP training be enough to get a job?
I was in the marine reserves. I graduated MP school in 2003 and served in Iraq 2 times doing various missions such as combat foot patrols and vehicle patols. IED Sweeps. Detainee transportation. Entry control point security and searching suspected insurgents everyday. I'm just curious how much this will help me get a corrections officer job. Or do i still have to take classes and get a certificate.

Honorable Discharge and a DD214 will get you 10 points as a veteran. The training you have had is very good, but; each state has their own P.O.S.T. Certification to be qualified to meet that states standards.

You could be Force Recon or a Navy SEAL, but you still get trained by whoever hires you. The military experience will help you get hired, but you still attend the academy.

all this is very good but has absolutely nothing to do with being a correction officer.it may get you into the hiring process but that is it.you will then have to take the training and schooling that the department requires.someone without any of the things you have will have to do the same thing...
