1. Your knowledge of any on-line certification courses for Fire-Medical Emergency Communication Centers.
2. Awareness of any age and/or illness assessment limitation or roadblock to consideration.

I'm assuming those are questions.
1. Any training will be paid for and provided by the agency that hires you. Don't waste your own money.
2. There are several "things" that could limit your abilities in a Comm center such as hearing loss and severe blindness among others. As far as the age thing, it's definitely not a profession you want to get into after or right before retirement, it's stressful with all shiftwork. Younger people tend to have a beter time of getting hired and making it through training in my experience.Someone once told me that time is a predator that stalks us all our lives. But maybe time is also a companion who goes with us on our journey, and reminds us to cherish the moments of our lives because they will never come again.
