WHO CAN TAKE CLASSES?
CERT classes are free and open to all adults who are 18 years of age and older and legal residents of the United States. Taking the CERT basic training does not obligate participants to anything beyond self-preparedness, for one’s own personal use.
WHY SHOULD YOU TAKE CLASSES?When a disaster strikes, knowing what to do, how to do it, and if and when you should do it, is empowering. With this training you are putting yourself in a knowledgeable position - no longer helpless but with the ability to help your own family, neighbors and friends. Initial training consists of a series of five (5) four hour training classes which are held on five consecutive nights from 6 pm to 10 pm at Paradise Maintenance Yard on Grenfall Ln. in Big Bear City.
