911 Is A Great Career
Simulator + Textbook + Curriculum + Certification.
Over twenty years ago, Sue Pivetta had a problem. Her 9-1-1 Comm Center was facing a hiring crisis: We were hiring five and losing seven. One evening over dinner with friends, someone asked why she didn’t go to the college or high school tech program to find trained people.
Good question. Bad answer! There were no vocational training programs in the entire U.S. or Canada for her chosen life work. So, Sue started the first vocational course in the nation at Renton Technical College. The career clusters we found for this course were Health Science and Public Safety.
Update to today. Now Sue has a company of professional 9-1-1 educators helping to create educational programs in high schools and colleges. 9-1-1 unfortunately is STILL in a hiring crisis. More colleges and high school programs are needed. Students will be hired at 18. VoTech students have a huge advantage over other applicants to survive and thrive in training.
