0900-0950 Handling Difficult Callers

It is important as telecommunicators to be able to handle a wide variety of personalities. We are usually not talking to people while they are at their best.  They may not be responsive to us.  They may not understand exactly what they want themselves.  During this session, we will discuss techniques to handle various types of difficult callers, learn from case study audio, and describe ways to project a positive and professional image to callers. 1 Hr Interpersonal Perspectives

1400-1450 What Should I Tell Them?

As a 911 operator, you may have heard yourself say “Every day is something new” while other days leave you feeling “I’ve heard it all”. The purpose of this course is to call to mind some of those unique situations that we may have never considered, make them more familiar and include a few key tips in handling them effectively as a 911 operator. 1 Hr Interpersonal Perspectives & 1 Hr Skill Development
