When a class is scheduled using the Programs system, either inmates who are both qualified and interested in taking the course or guards not having the tazer certification yet will arrive in the classroom to learn, depending on the program. Inmates are rated according to their attendance and concentration level during the course, which will affect their pass chance at the end of the program. Note that each Prisoner or guard requires a School Desk to sit at during the class, and the number of desks may limit the number of inmates enrolled.

For the prisoner programs, Foundation Education Program and General Education Qualification, the Teacher is an external employee who arrives just before the class is to begin and uses the required Desk placed in the classroom to conduct the course. Navigation time for the Teacher to reach the classroom may impact the attendance rating for the inmates enrolled in the class, so make sure there is an efficient path from the classroom to the outside. Both programs will take 3 hours, with the Foundation Education Program being able to be attended by 20 prisoners, while the General Education Qualification can only be attended by 10 prisoners per session.

The only program for guards is the Guard Tazer Certification, led by the Chief. The program is limited to 10 guards per session and will take one hour.

The Classroom requires Education to be researched.
