Back To School

Back To School

3 Week 
8-5
POST dispatch academy
 (police officer standard training)


I got a new job.
Palo Alto 911 Dispatcher
I know...
I'm having a baby in a month....

BUT,
this one has been in the works since July.

GOOD NEWS
*I get to be a dispatcher again!
*I don't have to start work til i'm good and ready
*It's reserve, so I can make my own schedule, 
and work as much/ as little as I want.

BAD NEWS
*California doesn't recognize my Utah POST certification
*I have to re-take this real real long boring class for beginner dispatchers
*I have lots of dispatch experience....
6 years...
3 weeks of having to sit through this class is going to be the 
longest
most boring
most pregnant
3 weeks EVER

Hopefully I will survive.

  1. Congrats on the new job and being on reserve. :) Too bad there isn't an abbreviated class for you. I think you need to give yourself a little treat or reward when you finish.
