Wake Tech offers a variety of law enforcement training opportunities in the classroom and through practical application. Training is provided at the request of law enforcement agencies. Our training programs emphasize legal and technological advancements in law enforcement.
A firing range, a firearms training simulator, a reality-based simulation training room and a defensive tactics room are among the facilities to take your training to the next level.
Telecommunicator certification course
The North Carolina Sheriff's Education and Training Standards Commission requires its dispatch center telecommunicators to be certified within one year of employment. Employees of other law enforcement agencies are encouraged to take the class to build skills. Training is free for currently employed telecommunicators. Those seeking employment with an agency may also attend; however, class prerequisites include that they be at least 18 years old and provide documentation that they meet N.C. Sheriff's Education and Training Standards Commission requirements, which include a documented medical physical, medical history and a criminal background check.
