Overview
This is the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) mandated TDD/TTY for Telecommunicators #3812 (TCOLE) [OSS Option 1] online training course offered for Texas Telecommunicators.

The hearing and speech impaired often use a communication system called TTY [Text Teletypewriter or Text Telephone] to communicate over conventional or cell phones. Also in common use are TDD [Telecommunications Device for the Deaf]. In practical terms TTY and TDD are used interchangeably and refer to any type of text-based telecommunications equipment used by a person who does not have enough functional hearing to understand speech, even with amplification.

Texas Telecommunicators have a unique requirement to complete variations of the TDD/TTY for Telecommunicators #3812 course every six months. Stay tuned ~ February 2019 as OSS Academy® is developing and will be offering TDD/TTY for Telecommunicators #3812 (TCOLE) [OSS Option 2] which will enhance the adult learning process with new creative course materials.

As technology advances, smartphones are an increasing popular way for the hearing impaired to communicate. However, when that is not an option [for example, calling 911] the primary way to communicate is through a TTY system or a relay service. It is important for you to understand how these systems work in order to communicate efficiently with someone who is hearing or speech impaired. If there are abbreviations or technical terms that are unfamiliar to you, be sure to check the glossary included with this course.

Please note, the entire course (including any applicable course parts), final exam(s), and course evaluation(s) must be completed in order to receive four (4) hours of course credit.
