Register

How to I register my employees?

In order to bulk register multiple attendees, you will need to request to be the Agency Manager by sending an email to certs@emergencydispatch.org (more than 1 per Agency is allowed). Upon approval, you will be able to register multiple participants from your agency, when they have the correct agency ID in their profile.

Why can’t I register my employees?

Like other schools, the attendee is responsible for enrolling in their courses, and the new system is compliant with the most recent data protection laws.

I registered myself as opposed to my employee, what do I do?

You need to cancel the registration of yourself and register the correct attendee. If you registered yourself and paid with a credit card, send an email to courses@prioritydispatch.net to request a voucher for the class which will be for the full amount of the class.

Payments

How do I pay with a PO?

You need to have your agency ID in your profile in order to use the PO Option. With this information, the PO box will populate when checking out. If you do not already have a PO number, you can simply put “bill me later” for your agency to be billed after the course. Without an agency ID, you must pay with a credit card. https://vimeo.com/366521684
