NENA’s Center Manager Certification Program (CMCP) is designed to equip recently-hired, newly-promoted, and aspiring PSAP and 9-1-1 Authority Managers and Supervisors with the tools needed to manage their agency effectively through a rigorous 40-hour course of lecture and lab-based education. For more seasoned 9-1-1 professionals, the CMCP may serve to fill in some of the gaps and strengthen core competencies required in emergency communications center management.
The program serves as an affordable career advancement opportunity to anyone involved in public safety agency management, and provides education in subject areas that are critically important to anyone looking to forge a long and successful career path. The CMCP, unlike many other upper-level emergency communications training programs, utilizes a real-world, hands-on approach focused on topics encountered daily by managerial and supervisory personnel.
With a curriculum built by current and former 9-1-1 center managers with decades of combined supervisory and training experience, the program will provide you with knowledge and skills that can immediately and drastically improve your on-the-job effectiveness and enhance your agency’s everyday operations.
This is a 5-day course.
In order to fully participate in daily assignments and activities, all students should bring a laptop with a USB port, Microsoft Office and PDF reader software.
