Public Safety Telecommunicator (NDP.PST)

The Lake Land College Public Safety Telecommunicator Certification Program is designed with the assistance of 911 Dispatch/Telecommunicator Personnel and a suggested program by leaders in public safety communication. The program is modeled from an Illinois Public Safety Telecommunicator Certification Program designed by the joint effort of the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (APCO) and the National Emergency Number Association (NENA). The suggested certification has been approved by the Public Safety Telecommunicator Training Standards and Certification Committee (PSTTSCI) for the purpose of providing the students of the program with a basic understanding of public safety communications including field internship, and courses directly related to skills and knowledge required to successfully acquire and maintain employment as a public safety telecommunicator. It is designed to provide a student who successfully completes the certification program with the basic skills and knowledge that will be required by public safety telecommunicator dispatch centers. Completion of this program does not guarantee certification by the state of Illinois, or employment by a public safety telecommunicator agency.
