About the Program

GHC 9-1-1 TELECOMMUNICATIONS TRAINING CENTER
Telecommunicators are the citizen's "link" to emergency services. Training on the use of the 9-1-1 equipment is necessary to assuring that the link is effective. As a part of its goal, GHC 9-1-1 provides both a comprehensive training and enrichment program for telecommunicators and supervisors, utilizing GHC 9-1-1 trainers and outside professional speakers.


TRAINING FOR 9-1-1 TELECOMMUNICATORS
The heart of emergency response is call processing, evidenced by the dedication of GHC 9-1-1 to insure that the nearly 1,200 call takers throughout its territory are trained. Call takers undergo intense instruction on the proper use of a sophisticated call processing system. It is a computer telephony integration solution providing operators with vital information. Training is offered in the two 24-seat call taker training rooms located at the GHC 9-1-1 Headquarters. All call takers are educated on how to properly utilize the 9-1-1 equipment and ultimately provide a vital link to emergency services to their community.

PROFESSIONAL GROWTH COURSES
A minimum of six professional seminars is sponsored by GHC 9-1-1 each year to provide education and enrichment sessions to telecommunicators, dispatchers, and supervisors throughout the Network's territory. The topics cover a variety of issues, including liability, stress management, handling of difficult calls, disaster situations, etc. The seminar program is a voluntary one for jurisdictions, and over the last several years, has been highly attended. Attendees receive law enforcement (TCLEOSE) credits; jurisdictions pay a nominal fee for their personnel to participate in these seminars, with GHC 9-1-1 underwriting the remainder of the cost. The program provides opportunities that many public safety personnel have not been afforded in the past; evaluations of these seminars attest to their value.

 

TCLEOSE MANDATED COURSES
GHC 9-1-1 is now providing more courses for telecommunicators who are seeking TCLEOSE certifications.. These courses will include the Basic Telecommunicator course #1013, Crisis Communications #2120, TCIC/NCIC, and more.
