Smart Horizons realizes that public safety organizations are vitally interested in the proper training and professional development of their personnel, yet are often constrained by today’s challenging fiscal climate.
Pensacola, FL (PRWEB) October 31, 2011
Smart Horizons today announced a site license option for their popular online emergency dispatch training courses. The HITS Telecom Basic, Refresher, and Communications Center Supervisor courses have previously been offered only as individual units costing $199 per individual for Telecom Basic, $199 for Communications Center Supervisor, and $159 for the Refresher course that is frequently an annual continuing education/professional development requirement. Under this unit pricing structure, taking all three courses would cost $557 per individual.
Smart Horizons realizes that public safety organizations are vitally interested in the proper training and professional development of their personnel, yet are often constrained by today’s challenging fiscal climate. In response, they are now offering a site license plan that allows public service organizations to enroll all individuals in their organization in order to access all three courses for an annual price of only $100 per person. This offering provides PSAPs a cost-effective solution to accommodate new dispatchers, meet annual training requirements, and enhance the professional growth of their employees. For example, a public safety organization with 10 employees can now purchase a site license that provides all employees access to all three training courses for only $1000 per year, whereas this training would cost $5,570 if purchased as individual units.
The annual $100 per individual site license fee not only greatly reduces costs, but it also provides public safety organizations enhanced capability to monitor and document training progress. When a site license is established, individuals will be able to access training and supervisors will be able to monitor employee training records through the organization’s unique, branded portal via permissions-based logins on the NexPort learning management system.
