Hi folks,

your volunteer PIO

The schedules for the next CERT 2 courses are listed below. We are running two classes, concurrently, to allow for optimal participation. The classes have been staggered, so if you miss a class one week, you should be able to make it up the following week. CERT 40 will be held on Wednesday evenings and CERT 41 will be on Thursdays. You will need to attend all classes and the final exercise to obtain your certification. All classes will be held at the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Academy located at 4600 West Ox Road, Fairfax, VA 22030. All classes EXCEPT Saturday 10/24 are from 7:00pm until 10:30pm. 10\24 is from 8:00am until 4:00pm.

Please let me know if you would like to register for one of these courses by emailing me at . Please include the course number you wish to attend and all of your contact information to include: home, work and cell phone numbers, street address, and any alternative email addresses. There are no prerequisites to attend these courses.

We will try to accommodate everyone, but registration will occur on a first-come-first-serve basis. Anyone who does not make it into these two classes will be placed on a waiting list for the next available training.

Thanks again for your interest in the CERT Program.
