Commands must have qualified escorts to move both pre-trial and post-trial prisoners to and from the Brig. 
To be qualified, personnel must meet screening criteria, attend a one-day Brig Basic Escort Class and pass a written proficiency test.  Successful completion will result in the issuance of an Basic Escort Identification Card.  The certification is good for one year.
 

Exemptions
Army/Marine Corps Military Police, Air Force Security Force, Navy Master-At-Arms and NEC (826A) / Marine MOS (5831) and Army MOS (31E) school-trained corrections personnel may be exempt from attending the class, but must meet the screening criteria.

Class Schedule
Brig Basic Escort Classes are scheduled on the third Tuesday of each month.  Reservations are not required nor taken; personnel are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis until the class is full (up to 60 attendees max).  The class begins promptly at 0730 and early arrival (NLT 0700) is highly encouraged to obtain an available seat.  Class duration is 0730-1600. Attendees who show up after the class has begun will be turned away.  The schedule for 2021 class dates are provided below:  

 
Requirements
Escorts shall be carefully selected for maturity and the ability to handle emergencies.
 
Requesting activities shall provide their own escorts for trial, administrative, legal, and any other appointments for pre-trial prisoners.
 
Commands with frequent prisoner movements shall provide a pool of escorts and each trip shall include at least one escort who has traversed the same route in similar transportation.
 
In all cases, at least one escort will be of the same gender as the prisoner.
 
When transporting a pre-trial officer prisoner, at least one escort will be an officer of equal or higher rank than the officer prisoner.
 
Escorts will not be authorized to carry nightsticks or other weapons.
 
Maximum and Medium In Custody (MDI) prisoners must be escorted by at least two escorts. MDI prisoners shall wear restraints at all times while outside the security perimeter of the Brig.
 
A military judge (not a lawyer) may direct that restraints be removed from a prisoner in a courtroom if, in the judge’s opinion, such restraint is not necessary.
