Basic Communications Officer Training Course

Course Hours: 40.0 Hours

Course Description

This course is intended for new communications officers of local governmental agencies who receive, process, or transmit public safety information and who dispatch law enforcement, firefighters, medical or emergency management personnel. Topics include emergency telephone answering techniques, handling text telephone calls, radio broadcast techniques, and emergency management procedures.

Prerequisites

POST Council no longer issues hard copies of the POSTFORM-2 (P2). Instead, an electronic P2 number will be issued and forwarded directly to the Course Coordinator by POST Council. Students may apply for the course at any time. Agencies are not required to wait for notification from POST that the P2 number has been issued before applying for the course; however, the student will not be accepted unless a P2 number has been issued. Applicants who have been employed for more than six months must pay tuition, meals and lodging, and will be accepted on a space available basis only.

Who Should Attend

Communications officers, 911 operators, call takers, and dispatchers.

Special Notes

This course meets the training requirements for POST Communications Officer certification.
