Welcome LEAP Learners!

The Learning Experiences to Advance Practice (LEAP) program is an innovative platform for learning about conducting research in criminal justice and health settings.

The LEAP program includes the LEAP Learner Track (you are here!), LEAP Scholar Track, and the LEAP Investigator Track.

JTEC provides LEAP Learners with six entry-level courses and resources on critical topics. By educating about the effective and ethical conduct of research with criminal justice involved populations, we hope to build capacity for this research, which is sorely needed.

LEAP Learner Track Courses

Entry-level courses and resources on critical topics pertaining to performing research at the intersection of justice and health. These courses are for everyone and cover many topics. Learners can take each 90-minute course individually and earn a certificate of completion or take all six (as they become available) to become a Certified LEAP Learner.
