What Will I Learn in CERT?

CERT Class

People who participate in CERT training will have a better understanding of potential disaster threats to their home, workplace and community. If a disaster occurs that overwhelms local emergency response capabilities, trained CERT members can apply their training to give critical support to family, neighbors and co-workers until professional help arrives.

Classroom and hands-on training modules will cover the following topics:

Unit 1 | Unit 2 | Unit 3 | Unit 4 | Unit 5 | Unit 6 | Unit 7 | Unit 8 | Unit 9 | WUI
