Become CERT Trained

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

The CERT course provides basic training on the following topics:
*  Disaster Preparedness
*  Disaster Fire Suppression
*  Disaster Medical Operations
*  Light Search And Rescue Operations
*  Disaster Psychology And Team Organization
*  Course Review And Disaster Simulation

Course fees:  $30 per person for residents, non-profit organizations, civic groups, etc
$75 per person for business, corporations

Fees pay for instruction, CERT manual, and CERT “kit.”  CERT “kits” are awarded to all students upon successful completion of the course on the last day of class.

Payment can be made online following the online class registration.  If not paying online, payment must be made the first night of class payable to Salt Lake City Corp in the form of a check or money order. Cash cannot be accepted.

Upon successfully completing the course, students will receive a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recognized certificate of completion.
