Our efforts to hire and train new employees is constant! On December 5th, 2016 eight new Emergency Communications Trainees (ECTs) started with Portland / Multnomah County 911.While they make their way through our extensive10 week in house training academy, new recruits are being vetted. We hope to have at least nine new trainees start with us during the first week of March, just a few weeks after the current trainees start on-the-job training with assigned trainers. As soon as the next training academy starts we will open our next recruitment.
