Training Opportunities


Together, the Virginia Chapters of NENA and APCO offer several excellent training opportunities every year at the Spring and Fall Conferences. In addition, agencies throughout the commonwealth offer training classes each year and may have openings for other agencies and individuals.

The Virginia NENA website is now offering an on-line location to consolidate listings of training available from Public Safety Agencies within the Commonwealth of Virginia. We encourage any public safety agency scheduling a course and may have additional openings for other agencies or individuals, to post the offering on the Virginia NENA Training web page.

If there are training courses you would like to see offered by Virginia Chapter of NENA in the future, please contact a Board Member.

The courses listed below are solely the responsibility of the submitting agency, not Virginia NENA, unless noted otherwise.
