A Five Diamond Monitoring Center designation is granted only to select monitoring centers that satisfy all of the requirements of the following “five points of excellence:”  
  • Commitment to ongoing job-related education and testing by having 100% of its monitoring center operators certified using the TMA online training series on industry best practices
  • Commitment to random inspections and quality criteria standards by a nationally recognized testing laboratory such as FM Approvals, Intertek/ETL and UL

  A Five Diamond Alert 360 Monitoring Center Equals a Higher Quality Customer Experience The TMA Five Diamond designation means specifically that an alarm monitoring company, such as Alert 360, has demonstrated an exceptionally high degree of responsibility to their local community and their customers through the investment of time, money and commitment to quality operator training.   We’re Much More Than a Smart Home Provider and Home Security Company Alarm dispatchers, like our amazing Alert 360 team members, serve as a life-saving link between residential or business properties and police, fire and emergency services in local areas. Because of this, TMA Monitoring Center Operator course covers virtually all phases of monitoring center communications with customers, police, fire and emergency services communications centers. To achieve the Five Diamond designation, each and every operator must not only pass the course, but demonstrate:  
  • Proficiency in alarm confirmation process, which helps reduce false alarms;
  • Proficiency in communications with Public Service Answering Points, such as the Emergency 911 centers;
  • Knowledge of electronic communications equipment, including, cellular, radio and internet communication systems;
  • An understanding of the codes and standards of organizations such as Underwriters Laboratories, Factory Mutual, the National Fire Protection Association and others; and
  • Proficiency in the area of emergency preparedness under a wide scenario of possibilities.
