APCO receives ANSI approval for training standards

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has given final approval to the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (APCO) for a revised American National Standard (ANS).

This ANS identifies core competencies and minimum training standards for public safety communications instructors.

The revision and redesignation process occurs every five years for all American National Standards. This ensures that all standards are up to date with current trends in operations, training and technology.

“APCO is the leader in developing training standards for public safety communications. Routine review and revision of our standards ensures essential training requirements and core competencies are current and relevant,” said Martha Carter, President of APCO International.

The new standard can be downloaded at www.apcointl.org/standards/standards-to-download.
