The Massachusetts State 911 Department understands the crucial role the 911 PSAP Supervisor/Manager plays in the PSAP Administration and Operations. To that end, the State 911 Department is pleased to announce the release of the FY 2021 PSAP Leadership Scholarship Program.
he Massachusetts Communications Supervisors Association is proud to assist with the administration of this scholarship program funded in the amount of fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) by the Massachusetts State 911 Department. Funding may be awarded for expenses associated with attendance at a State 911 Department-approved leadership program, not to exceed one person per PSAP, for persons who are certified as an enhanced 911 telecommunicator and employed by a primary PSAP, regional PSAP, regional secondary PSAP, or RECC. Due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions, attendance at any leadership program must occur on or after January 1, 2021. Recipients of the scholarship will have the opportunity participate in the Certified Public-Safety Executive (CPE) Course or attend the CCM course, if one is offered in the spring of 2021 or other State 911 Department approved executive development and leadership program. The CPE course includes a 9-day training in Daytona Beach, FL and an online component. The CCM course includes two 6-day trainings in a location determined by the vendor and an online component.
