Basic Telecommunications Licensing Course #1013

Friday, June 15, 2018

Instructor/ TJ Niemietz

Effective January 1, 2014, this training is now a licensing course required of all new telecommunication specialists.  The course must be completed within one year of hire by an agency.  Participants must meet state minimum standards set forth by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE), pass the course, and pass the TCOLE state exam in order to become licensed.
This class is open to individuals seeking licensing on their own or for individuals who are already working for a police agency.  Those applicants not already working for a police agency will need to complete a psychological and criminal background.  Contact for more information.

It is required to complete TCIC/NCIC #3802, Crisis Communication # 2120, and NIMS classes before this course.   Check our catalog for class dates.   NIMS 100 and 200 classes can be completed through FEMA on-line at:

TCOLE Rules require that a person take and complete course/test 1305 (TCOLE Rule Overview for Jailers and Telecommunicators) or BPOC Chapter 33 Rules Overview Exam for Peace Officers), which is a required pre-requisite for licensure testing.  A 100% score on the 1305 test is required in order to take the state exam.

The test is a Basic Reading Comprehension test. A Practice Test can be found at:
