Getting Ready for CERT Training

Last night I mentioned a class that you can take online that you may find helpful as part of your CERT preparation. The purpose of this course is to help you prepare for classroom CERT training.

This online course will:

Provide foundation concepts for key CERT operations.
Explain principles and guidelines for CERT activities.
Preview the procedures that you will learn in the classroom.

  1. Is this not covered in the class?

  2. It is covered in class -- a few students wanted to work through the material before attending to have a better visual roadmap for the remaining classes. As adult learners, we need all the reinforcement we can get!

  3. This course is a good precursor to taking the county CERT course. I remember taking this a month before finding out about the county CERT program and classes.
    This online course is a good "warm up" to taking CERT classes in the county.
