911 Companies team up: Experiential learning now available to PROQA users
SALT LAKE CITY — Priority Dispatch Corp.™ (PDC™) and Professional Pride, Inc. have teamed up to bring ProQA® users an enhanced training experience with a new version of the 9-1-1 Reality PLUS ProQA multi-tasking phone and radio simulator.
Trainees using 9-1-1 Reality ProQA simulators practice protocol through Case Entry and Key Questions in an environment that allows trainees to learn from their mistakes without jeopardizing the health, well-being, and safety of the callers and responders. Learners gain valuable confidence and experience before taking their first real 911 call through practice with selecting the correct Chief Complaint, providing Pre-Arrival Instructions (PAIs) and Post-Dispatch Instructions (PDIs), and transmitting key information to responders.
Also, 9-1-1 Reality PLUS ProQA assists with quality assurance (QA) and minimizes risk by tracking and documenting trainee learning, performance, feedback, and progress. The trainer will know sooner during the process whether a trainee can put his or her IAED™ certification knowledge into practice on phones and radio.
"9-1-1 Reality PLUS ProQA elevates trainee skills in working through ProQA protocols," said Sue Pivetta, President, 9-1-1 Professional Pride, Inc. "Learners put into practice the knowledge gained from their IAED certification. They can bring the know-how to show with 'floor-ready, pre CAD' training and documentation."
