Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
Our courses are guided by the schools start and end times.
Is the NECC Certification required?
NECC is optional.
Can the course be taught in the classroom?
We love that the course can be taught in the classroom and online. Teachers can guide the students through some assignments and assign others to be done online remote or during classroom time.
Is the 9-1-1 Reality Simulator required?
No, but 9-1-1 Reality is awesome. Teachers can use any testing skills method knowing the NECC Board felt SKILLS are the main factor in new hires failing at a 9-1-1 agency. NECC is the ONLY 9-1-1 Certification that recognizes this obvious need.
Are 9-1-1 agencies hiring?
There is a hiring crisis in 9-1-1. Agencies hiring untrained applicants for this work face dismal retention rates! Agencies hiring grads trained with the 9-1-1Academy, NECC AND 9-1-1 Reality Simulation succeed! Of course - our grads have been trained to enter any Comm Center with a solid foundation under them. This course covers all entry level needs. Agencies will then train for agency specific needs. This is the new paradigm for the 9-1-1 industry. Hiring educated grads!
How long is the course?
The course is customized to your needs. All ten units must be covered but the online course allows teachers the ability to add, or conceal the lessons we offer. Reading the 9-1-1 Emergency Communications Manual is required as that is the heart of the knowledge. We recommend two semesters for high schools and for vocational education and academies we have courses from 250 to 500 hour range. Our first course 20 years ago was 520 hours and include tours, internship, speakers and job search. Canada has actual degree programs. 9-1-1 has been under valued, under estimated for too long. If you have a criminal justice, EMT, fire science course - how long are they? Well, give 9-1-1 the same respect and hours! We don't want this course to be an 'introduction' to 9-1-1. But even if it can only be that - that is more than we currently have now in many areas. We say shoot for the moon!
