No, he will simply be discharged from prison. Parole from prison is just a change in custodial level. Once the complete sentence is served, there is no more confinement.

What is the difference of parole and probation?

I'm not exactly sure what you are specifically asking as far as the requirements/education of a parole officer versus a probation officer, but I hope my answer will help. A parole officer is assigned to a person who has been state-sentenced, meaning that the inmate/prisoner has done prison time. A probation officer is assigned to a person who has been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony but is not state-sentenced (not sent to prison). They may have served time in the County jail, or may have just been sentenced to probation with no jail time. A person who is on parole HAS to go through the prison system and the parole board in each state is who determines if the inmate/prisoner would be a good qualifier for parole or not. Hope this helps!

How does probation and parole differ?

Probation is a term of supervision ordered by the Court after a plea or finding of guilt. Probation can be revoked for violations and a sentence of incarceration of 1 year or less ordered in jail for misdemeanors. For felonies if revoked a sentence of incarceration for one year or less in jail or a sentence of 1 or more years in State prison may be ordered. Parole is served after someone is released from State prison and they have time remaining on their sentence. They would be on parole for the remainder of their sentence. If parole is revoked the offender is returned to prison to serve some more time or the remainder of their time before again being released. Probation conditions and Parole conditions are pretty much the same.
