Questions about getting a job as a security dispatcher?

I am looking at a getting a job as a dispatcher. It is on the campus of a university. I have a couple questions? The dispatcher job is in context to the campus safety or security. What does it take to get a CPR/First Aid certificate? Is it hard? How much does it cost? How long does it take? How about a Public Safety Dispatcher certificate (same questions)? What is involved? What would I be doing as a dispatcher? and what would I need to know? and how can I prep to show that I can do it in an interview? It sounds like a chill job am I right? The campus is a very secure campus and if a dispatcher just sits around and talk on radios or something? also where would i get those certificates? a jc or some intensive? and it mentioned being on call and needing to have a phone 24 does this mean i wouldnt always have to be on campus? prob not right
