WP E911, NLTCC team for public safety course

Webster Parish E911 has partnered with Northwest Louisiana Technical Community College (NLTCC) and is offering a Public Safety Telcommunicator course to the general public.  

“Normally, this training is handled ‘in-house’ at the public safety agency after employment,” said 911 Director Angie Chapman. “This will be the first time this course has ever been offered to the public at the NLTCC Minden campus, and we are very excited about it.”

The certification is nationally recognized and most surrounding agencies (police, fire, EMS) require it.

“The hope is to build a skilled workforce here locally so that public safety agencies in our region have a certified pool of qualified candidates to draw from should a staffing need arise,” Chapman said.

The five-week course takes place from 5:30 until 8:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, February 7 through March 11 at NLTCC Minden Campus, 9500 Industrial Drive.

For more information and to register, call 318-371-3035, ext. 1302. Chapman said the program requires at least 15 persons and no more than 30.
