CMCEF will once again be offering the two-day Dispatcher Training Program in Vancouver from January 30 to 31, 2014.  Registrations will be accepted until January 15th.  In 2007, the program was updated and adapted specifically for the Canadian market by Richard Worr Consulting. It has been offered numerous times across Canada with great reviews. 

Here is what one attendee recently said: "I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the 2-day seminar for dispatching that I attended in Winnipeg! Rick Worr was an exceptional instructor!! The course was very informative and Rick also made it interesting and fun!! I really learned a lot about the duties and requirements of the Dispatcher position and how to excel at customer service. I would definitely recommend this seminar for not only someone new to the Dispatcher position, but also to someone who has been in this position for a while. I learned a lot of tips that will greatly enhance my performance with our customers as well as with our technicians. Thank you and please thank Rick. ~ Sherry Beaudry, ABCO Supply and Service, Winnipeg, MB
