CERT Academy Schedule

Using classroom and simulation based education, CERT members can assist others in the neighborhood or workplace immediately following an event when emergency responders may not be immediately available to help. CERT training is only $35.00 and is not payable until the first day of class. The training is 21 hours spread over 6 evenings and a Saturday morning, culminating with a final disaster simulation exercise, applying the skills participants have learned. The fee covers the participant’s safety equipment and training materials.

Training is broken up into eight modules:

  • Emergency Preparedness
  • CERT Organization
  • Disaster Psychology
  • Fire Safety
  • Light Search and Rescue
  • Emergency Medical Operations
  • Terrorism Awareness
  • Disaster Simulation Exercise
