Telecommunicator Certification course

The North Carolina Sheriff's Education and Training Standards Commission requires its dispatch center telecommunicators to be certified within one year of employment. Employees of other law enforcement agencies are encouraged to take the class to build skills. Training is free for currently employed telecommunicators. Those seeking employment with an agency may also attend; however, class prerequisites include that they be at least 21 years old and provide documentation that they meet the N.C. Sheriff's Education and Training Standards Commission's requirements, which include a documented medical physical, medical history and a criminal background check.
