Default Tcom/rdap - how long does it take/how long is the wait?

Our son is in the Hardeman County Correctional Center. He was granted parole in January of 2019 -- upon completion of the TCOM/RDAP program. Though he was mandated to take the program, he is still waiting to get in. How long is the normal waiting period for a mandated inmate to get into this class?

We have heard that this is a nine-month program everywhere except at Hardeman where there is a three-month pre-program in addition to the nine months. Is this true?

Hardeman also has a policy of making an inmate wait an additional six months to get into the program if the inmate has a write-up. Is this the case in all TN state prisons?

Thank you.

I'm afraid I don't have any answers for you. Here's hoping someone else will be along soon with more information than I have.
