What a ride! The last two weeks have been hectic, but fun. I started my training on December 16th, and have not looked back.
There is so much to learn! We dispatch for about 28 different agencies, spread out over 3 counties. And they all have their own policies and procedures. Just memorizing the CAD (Computer Aided Dispatch) designators for them all is a chore. Not to mention “event codes” and “phonetic designators” for all the police agencies.
It ‘s like going back to school all over again – AND learning a new language at the same time. But although it’s challenging me, I love it. 🙂
