In 2009, there was a meeting between the NFPA 1061 Technical Committee (TC) and APCO to discuss the NFPA 1061 document, the APCO P33 document, and to open the dialog between both organizations for the future of these documents. While NFPA 1061 describes individual competency/evaluation, APCO P33 compliments these requirements by defining training standards by which the Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJO), hiring authority, or communication center manager would use to train those that work at a specific facility.
All of Northern911’s Public Safety Telecommunications Personnel are APCO certified. We are listed by Under Writer’s Laboratories of Canada (ULC) and our fully bilingual, 24/7/365 facility is inspected on an annual basis for compliance with their standards. Northern911 has a proven record for exceeding industry standards and always striving for more.
