TMA Releases Updated Operator Online Level 2 Training Course
New modules deliver advanced operator skills in areas of leadership, conflict resolution, advanced call handling, cybersecurity and more.
McLEAN, Va. — The Monitoring Association (TMA) announces its newly updated Operator Online Level 2 training program is now available for purchase. The new course is said to build upon TMA’s Operator Online Level 1 training program by offering six, advanced modules that support skills and standards of professionalism needed to be an effective contributor in the monitoring center.
The course is highly relatable and challenges operators to expand their knowledge through a focus on critical-thinking exercises associated with team-building, conflict resolution and more impactful customer care, according to the announcement.
The content continues to support TMA’s Operator Code of Excellence that features professional behavior and commitment to the professional monitoring industry, where life-safety and protection of property and business processes are paramount.
Through an introduction to Leadership, operators will experience a new skillset that reinforces accountability through better communication and personal responsibility.
“With the new normal of working remote and distance learning, the TMA’s Operator Online Level 2 training program offers a fresh perspective on monitoring, leadership, and the evolution of technology in the life safety industry,” states TMA Education Committee Co-Chair John Brady, TRG Associates. “Subject matter experts and experienced monitoring center practitioners collaborated on content to provide the most relevant knowledge and skills for monitoring center staff today.”
TMA Education Co-Chair Brandon Niles, Acadian Monitoring Services, adds, “This course is the perfect companion to the TMA Operator Online Level 1 course. It adds layers of training that help ensure that all alarm operators are well rounded with a comprehensive knowledge-base of the alarm industry and alarm handling process.
