CERT Basic Training is designed to prepare you to help yourself and others in the event of a catastrophic disaster. This training covers basic skills that are important to know when emergency services are not available. With hands-on training and practice, and by working as a team, you will be able to protect yourself and do the greatest good for the greatest number after a disaster. You can make a difference by using your CERT training to save lives and protect property.
CERT Basic Training is a nationally standardized course, taught by local instructors. Nine units will be covered over five days. Exact dates and times for each unit will be announced. You must successfully complete all nine units to become a nationally certified CERT member.
