I got word at work last night that I will be in the next radio (or police dispatcher) training class, it starts on October 9th. I requested this, because I want to make sure I have marketable skills should I decide I want to move out of Arizona (I am considering it as a long term goal.) I figure if I can dispatch here, I can dispatch anywhere. On one hand, I'm very excited about it. It means more opportunities even if I stay here, more flexibility in scheduling, and a pay raise. I find it very interesting on that side of the room :) On the other hand, I don't know that I'm fully recovered from 911 training and that was almost 2 years ago! It's just very intense, and radio training has the potential to be worse. It's about 6 months worth of training. One of my friends went through it recently and seemed just overwhelmed a lot of the time. She said "I just hate feeling like I don't know what I'm doing. There is no time there to not know what you are doing!" And there's so very much to learn. Sometimes I doubt I have what it takes. But I know I have to try.
