Green Oaks Training Academy

The Michigan Department of Corrections Green Oaks Training and Professional Development Center is a facility dedicated to training staff for the state's correctional institutions. Located near Woodland Center Correctional Facility in Whitmore Lake, Michigan, the new training center offers a variety of programs, including training for new corrections officers and newly hired non-custody employees, as well as in-service training for current staff. The facility includes classrooms, administrative offices, a dormitory, a dining hall, a gymnasium, a multi-purpose conference space, and a firing range.

In 2020, the Michigan Department of Corrections acquired the Green Oaks facility and began renovations to transform it into a 21st-century state-of-the-art training academy. The dormitory renovations are expected to be finished in July 2024, completing the facility.
