The benefits of starting a CERT include free emergency preparedness training, immediate emergency response services after a disaster, and increased community involvement. As an added bonus, CERT members receive educational materials, CERT equipment (as available), and a certificate of completion.
CERT provides community members with skills such as disaster preparedness, fire safety, basic medical operations, light search and rescue, team organization, and more. Additionally, refresher and advanced courses are offered on a quarterly basis.
There are currently no scheduled CERT Basic Training courses. Our next basic course will likely be at the end of summer, early fall 2018.For those who already have completed CERT Basic Training, we do have a series of advanced trainings scheduled for the summer. Check the schedule (PDF) for more information.
Other training events and opportunities beyond Orange County can be found on the North Carolina CERT Calendar.
