APCO Seeks Comment on Core Competencies and Training Standards (3/26/12)
Monday, March 26, 2012 | Comments

The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International released for comments a Candidate American National Standard (ANS) that identifies the core competencies and minimum training requirements for public-safety communications training coordinators.

Candidate APCO ANS 3.104.1-201x focuses on competencies and training for a position typically tasked with the planning, development, coordination, implementation and administration of training within an agency. The training coordinator provides training and guidance to employees in order to achieve the agency’s mission, while providing service to the public and emergency responders.

This standard refers to the function of the position commonly titled Training Coordinator; however, agencies may title the position differently. The purpose of the standard is to provide a consistent foundation for the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to fulfill this critical function.

“Oversight of the agency training programs for public-safety telecommunicators is critical,” said APCO International President Gregg Riddle. “Appropriate training helps to ensure professional, reliable and timely service to our communities.”

The public review and comment period provides an opportunity for all interested parties to review and contribute. The draft standard can be downloaded for review here. Comments must be submitted via email to standards@apcointl.org by May 7, 2012.
