Ordona graduated with 34 other corrections officers from throughout the state who began their training academy Sept. 9.
Graduation is a requirement for certification as a state corrections deputy.
Ordona was selected marching commander for his class and led them in morning flag-raising ceremonies, inspections and graduation processional entry.
He also was recognized for participating in voluntary extracurricular defensive-tactics training offered before and after all daily scheduled training classes.
The curriculum consists of 160 hours of intensive instruction designed to provide corrections training for employees whose primary job function is to provide for the custody, safety and security of adults in jail.
Areas of study include professionalism and managing inmates, legal issues, defensive tactics, officer safety, conducting searches, use of force, report writing, crisis management and many other skills necessary to manage incarcerated adults.
Ordona came to the Clallam Sheriff's Office in February with almost five years of corrections experience working at the state Clallam Bay Corrections Center.
He lives in Port Angeles with his wife, son and daughter.
