PROFESSIONAL PRISON RE-ENTRY COACH TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
NATIONALLY CERTIFIED PRISON RE-ENTRY COACH™ TRAINING (NCPRC)
Our comprehensive Professional Prison Re-Entry Coach Certification and Training Program will teach you how to handle clients that are looking for help to re-enter society. Individuals that have been recently incarcerated for issues including drug addiction and alcohol addiction, violence, gangs, theft, and more are invited and encouraged to get trained for a new career path. A Prison Re-Entry Coach’s function is to assist a client with returning to a new society and living a new, productive lifestyle. A Certified Prison Re-Entry Coach sets the parameters of the conversation, listens and contributes observations and questions, provides a roadmap for success, and assists the client as a team to achieve their desired goals. An action-based Prison Re-Entry Coach accelerates the client’s progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choices, actions, and responsibility.
Our Prison Re-Entry Coach Certification and training program will cover many topics, including: finding suitable and maintainable employment, staying sober from alcohol and drugs, discovering purpose and passion in life, learning new coping mechanisms, navigating new relationships, financial planning, re-entering a new society with new technology, understanding the new stigma of a criminal record, finding their new tribe, assessing and exploring new skills sets, creating new motivation factors, and more.

Your Co-host for this training, Claude Ouellette. Claude Ouellette is the author of Understanding Is Everything (a practical guide to self-betterment) Having grown up in a drug-addicted dysfunctional family, he knows first hand the direct mental, emotional, and physical damage this type of environment can bring to oneself. A twelve-year-old school drop out and a criminal by the age of fourteen, he is a living testament to breaking the chains of the term, “product of your environment.” As a convicted felon, facing fifteen years in Florida State Prison, Claude began his journey to self-betterment. Behind cold, steel walls he decided to break the chains of a former generation. “You only do what you know, until you learn something different.” Claude spent the next fifteen years taking self-help classes, business courses, trade courses, substance abuse classes, and life reentry classes. Finally, at 35, Claude was released from Florida Maximum Security Prison. He quickly set his long-awaited dreams into motion by using social media platforms to motivationally speak to those who may need a new perspective on life. A lesson he wished he would have been told before it was too late.
