News Release
9-1-1 Operators to Graduate from Oregon Public Safety Academy / DPSST - 05/12/21

9-1-1 Operators to Graduate from Oregon Public Safety Academy / DPSST

 

The Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) is pleased to announce the graduation of its 123rd Basic Telecommunications Class.

The three-week course includes emergency call handling techniques, stress management, civil liability, ethics, criminal law, overview of fire-rescue and law enforcement operations, and a number of other topics. Upon completion of the course, students will return to their employing agency to continue their training for a number of months with a field training officer.

The 9-1-1 training program began in 1993 when the Oregon Legislative Assembly enacted legislation which requires that individuals who receive emergency calls for assistance from the public, meet professional standards for training and certification. There are approximately 950 men and women across the state who work in this profession in city, county, tribal, regional, and state public safety communications centers.

Basic Telecommunications #BT123 Graduation will be held at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, May 14, 2021, at the Oregon Public Safety Academy, in Salem, Oregon. Telephone: 503-378-2100.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for social distancing, the graduation will be closed to the public.  However, we would like to publicly congratulate Basic Telecommunications Class #BT 123 for a successful completion of their Basic Training.
