911 Dispatcher Trainee

ECSO has paused recruitment for the 911 Dispatcher position while we evaluate candidates who already passed their skill test and interview.  You may still apply to be notified once testing and interviews resume (currently planned for September.)

No dispatching experience is necessary to apply, as we provide a full paid training program to successfully hired candidates. Applicants with experience in public safety dispatching or calltaking are also encouraged to apply.

Fast and accurate Keyboarding and Data Entry skills are essential for this position. The minimum typing speed needed is 40 wpm (net) on a standard computer keyboard.

When recruitment resumes, all applicants will be given a skills test, which takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. The test can be done on your home computer or at our facility. To take the test at home you will need:

  • Computer with a keyboard (a mouse/trackpad is optional but you might find it useful for some test sections)
  • A standard web browser (Edge, Chrome, or Firefox are recommended. Safari is possible with adjustments. Other browsers might not correctly run all test elements.)
  • Reliable internet connection
  • Headphones (or high-clarity speakers) to use during the audio data entry sections

If you do not own an appropriate computer, you will be able to make an appointment to test at the ECSO facility during the next recruitment window.
