APCO Begins Revision of Public-Safety Telecommunicator Training Standard
Wednesday, November 09, 2022 | Comments

The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International has filed a project initiation with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and has issued a call for participation for working group members to participate in the revision of the “APCO ANS Minimum Training Standards for Public Safety Telecommunicators.”

This standard identifies minimum training, knowledge and skills needed for both new and veteran telecommunicators tasked with the duties of call taking and dispatch of law enforcement, fire and emergency medical services.

“As the premiere public-safety communications standards development organization, APCO continues to seek highly performing incumbent workers when revising existing standards,” said APCO President Angela Batey. “This ensures the standards are current with recommendations, requirements and best practices.”

APCO is seeking volunteers to establish a working group of diverse stakeholders to contribute to the revision and redesignation of the standard. The Application deadline is December 19. Selections will be made within two weeks of the closing date and all applicants will be notified of their status.
