Introducing Comprehensive Next Generation Training.
Review our 9-1-1 training courses, hosted in North Texas, below.
We’re changing how training works for 9-1-1 in Texas. We’re launching a new training program that will focus on more than how to be a good 9-1-1 telecommunicator. Instead, we’ll build on a strong foundation of courses that teach what every telecommunicator needs to be successful. But we’re taking it one step further. We’ll also teach the mental preparation needed to excel at this career.
Our lineup of courses will do more than create telecommunicators. It will build successful, well-rounded, resilient professionals.
All class registrations require an assigned PID number and the name associated with the PID number. Registering with all zeros as the PID or using fictitious names will result in the registration being deleted. If you do not have a PID number issued by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement, please contact 9-1-1 Training Coordinator Bret Batchelor to complete the registration at BBatchelor@NCT911.org.
All class registrations also require that you are sponsored by the agency employing you. We do not accept self-sponsored student registration.
Unless otherwise noted, all training classes will be hosted at NCT9-1-1, 600 Six Flags Dr., Suite 226, Arlington, TX 76011.
In the event a class is cancelled, the 9-1-1 Training Coordinator ensures:
- The ECC Management and student(s) are notified via email
- The ECC Management and student(s) are notified via telephone
- Notices are posted on all NCT9-1-1 social media accounts
- The course is removed from the registration database
Courses may be canceled due to:
- Severe / Inclement weather
- Instructor tiered redundancy and/or staff exhausted
- Reserved training room conflict
- Other unpredictable incidents
For more information, contact 9-1-1 Training Coordinator Bret Batchelor at BBatchelor@NCT911.org.

Who does 9-1-1 call when 9-1-1 needs help? The Telecommunicator Emergency Response Taskforce, or TERT, provide assistance to PSAPs who may be struggling due to unforeseen circumstances such as a natural disaster.
TERT Basic Awareness Training
This training course is designed to train experienced 9-1-1 telecommunicators in one Emergency Communications Center (ECC) to assist another temporary, alternate, or permanent ECC when assistance is needed.
TERT Team Leader Training
One of the important components of establishing a viable Telecommunicator Emergency Response Taskforce (TERT) program is to identify and train individuals who will be designated as Team Leaders. Under provisions of the APCO/NENA Standards for TERT Deployment, each deployed team should be accompanied by a Team Leader.
This course will provide telecommunication officers with vital information in dealing with critical incidents and show how all levels of critical incidents are managed during the course of an incident. Telecommunications will understand what is going on that they do not see but also recognize the role they play in handling a critical situation. By the end of the course, telecommunication officers will have an overview of crisis/hostage negotiations, basic SWAT procedures, and basic Incident Command Structure along with what they can do to assist their agency during critical incidents.
There are currently no courses available. Future courses will be posted here. Make sure to subscriber to our training newsletter here: https://www.nct911.org/training-2/#subscribe
