Keep the Change

We call ourselves professional communicators, but boy do we have problems communicating with each other. In a world where change comes at an increasingly rapid pace, this course looks at the strategy and tactics needed to not only keep up, but to get ahead.  A must for any agency interested in team building for the future.


Debugging Your Dispatch


Do some people seem to feed on negative energy?  Spin a web of drama? Buzz around with little focus, or be pesky as a gnat? If so, Debugging Your Dispatch is the course for you. Learn to recognize the common character traits and behaviors of common PSAP pests. More importantly, learn how to screen them out, and if necessary, exterminate them!


Telecommunicator's Role in

First Responder Survival


If there’s one responsibility that rises above all others, then it’s making sure that everyone goes home safely. And no single person has more bearing on this than the telecommunicator. By using common sense guidelines, and reviewing case histories of calls gone good—and bad—this course pays for itself in peace of mind. Note: Standard course covers all disciplines, but can be customized for single service PSAPs.
