APCO Institute To Unveil New Training Product In Denver
Daytona Beach, FL - APCO Institute's new Public Safety Telecommunicator I (PST1), 6th Edition training course will debut during an unveiling event at the APCO International 71st Annual Conference and Exposition in Denver, Co. next month.
The new PST1 course blends the knowledge and skill-building information needed for a basic Telecommunicator with the most up-to-date information on the technology and issues surrounding today's public safety communications center. New additions to the curriculum include topics such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), Private Branch Exchange (PBX) Systems, and the Telecommunicator's role in the new U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) National Incident Management System's (NIMS) Incident Command System (ICS). There is also an extensive expansion of information on previously presented topics including entire modules dedicated to TTY and Telematics training.
"The APCO Institute is proud to be able to provide this new course and the valuable information it contains to today's public safety communications professionals," APCO International President Greg Ballentine said. "It is a continuation of our efforts to provide the timeliest and most complete training available to our membership and the industry as a whole."
The APCO International 71st Annual Conference and Exposition will be held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Co., Aug. 21-25. The PST1 unveiling will take place on the trade-show floor at the APCO Pavilion from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Monday, August 22.
