CTO Instructor National Certification

The CTO Instructor course is for the individual who coordinates the agency on-the-job training program. The CTO Instructor candidate should be an experienced and formally trained emergency communications employee who desires to train others with a structured on-the-job training program. This course is very beneficial to PSAPs, because once a PSAP has a Certified Communications Training Officer on staff, they will be able to conduct on-the-job training and maximize their training hours and minimize their training costs.

  •  Develop an agency performance-based on-the-job training program

Note: The CTO Instructor certification does not qualify the individual to conduct academic classroom training. The CTO certification requires as a prerequisite, the completion of the NECI 9-1-1 Instructor certification course. Conversely, the 9-1-1 Instructor is not authorized to conduct the one-on-one training unless certified as a CTO Instructor or Agency CTO.
