Communications Equipment Training

We provide training to support the communication technologies used by public safety agencies within Nova Scotia. We encourage users of the Trunk Mobile Radio (TMR) system to review the materials so they're always able to effectively use the system. These documents will be updated as needed and users are encouraged to visit this site often to ensure they have the most recent version of their agency's training material.
