Designated PSAP In-house Trainer Information –
The State 911 Department has developed a virtual learning environment in an effort to assist PSAPs with certifying personnel remotely. In order to meet the minimum training requirements set-forth in the State 911 Department’s CMRs, the Department will begin hosting the following classes through a virtual platform:
- Basic Public Safety Telecommunicator course (APCO PST 7th edition)
- A two-day, NG9-1-1 New Hire Equipment Training course
Virtual training will require full participation of a “PSAP In-House Trainer”. Each PSAP is asked to designate one or more PSAP In-house Trainer(s) to work with the State 911 Department’s Programs Division in certifying PSAP personnel. The In-house Trainer must be a certified E9-1-1 telecommunicator. The State 911 Department has posted a schedule above for the 2-hour workshops that will explain the role and responsibility of the PSAP In-House Trainer. It is strongly suggested that PSAPs select one or more candidates to attend this workshop.
