The author gives recommendations as to the training of the future probation personnel as to their work with probation subjects at different stages of their preparation for release in minimum and medium security prisons. The analysis of the modern demands to the probation personnel's competence caused the following conelusions: – It is necessary to make changes in the working programmes and increase a number of practical classes on «Criminal executive law», «Penitentiary Psychology», «Penitentiary Pedagogy», «Social Pedagogy». Practical classed should include special tasks as well as situation analysis, role plays, trainings and soon. – The working programme should be supplemented with the questions that deal with the probation body activity as well as with penitentiary probation.
