CERT Training Courses:

In the event of a major disaster such as a hurricane, emergency services personnel can initially become overwhelmed leaving citizens on their own. CERT training enables citizens to help themselves and their neighbors by applying basic response and organizational skills during an emergency. CERT members can also serve as first responders to an emergency until professional emergency services arrive. 

Classroom based courses are offered locally and throughout Florida, and online through the Emergency Management Institute.
