Kissimmee, Florida USA â€” On March 20-24, 2006, Micro Key Software will be hosting the Security Industry Associationâ€™s (SIA) Central Station Operator/Instructor Program (CSOp) at Micro Keyâ€™s newly renovated training facility. This modern, 1200-square-foot classroom (built to accommodate 30 students) has a fully networked advanced computer system complete with wireless Internet access, digital projection and all the traditional trainerâ€™s tools.
CSOp, now celebrating its 10th anniversary, is the security industryâ€™s only Train-the-Trainer program. This intensive 40-hour course was developed by SIA in conjunction with the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials-International Institute (APCO), the creators of 911 certification training. Central station personnel who attend CSOp are trained and certified to develop a comprehensive central station instructional program and conduct in-house operator training. Visit securitylearningnetwork.com for more information about CSOp and to register to attend.
Micro Key Software president Wayne Torrens stated, â€œAll central stations need to operate to industry standards. Attending this course is a very affordable way to gain the valuable skills to achieve this goal. Every central station should have a certified CSO trainer on their staff.â€
