WELCOME! 9-1-1 Is a GREAT career and this online interactive course for police, fire and EMD Emergency Communications is your complete turnkey online 9-1-1 (10) unit career curriculum..

As you can see below, each of the 10 units provides unique, interactive and engaging teaching tools such as; self surveys, 911 eBooks, scripted actual 911 calls, call taking and radio dispatch skillbuilding exercises, stress management games and exercises. Unit quizzes lead to a final online NECC Certification exam with immediate certification and one retake. NECC is the only 911 certification to require a skills exam proctored by the instructor.

A skills lab component is included in this course whereby students work with a phone and radio simulator to learn the skills of emergency call taking and radio dispatch.

COVID update. In the event students cannot attend simulation at the school, we have provided 'skills' games and exercises that suffice for the NECC Skills Certification requirement, along with the online 123 question exam.
