Program Description 

COURSE IS CURRENTLY FULL AND ON A WAIT LIST

CERT Basic Training is designed to prepare you to help yourself and to help others in the event of a catastrophic disaster.  Because emergency services personnel will not be able to help everyone immediately, you can make a difference by using your CERT training to save lives and protect property.

 

Lunch will not be provided. Students must bring a lunch for all Saturday course offerings.

For questions or further information, please contact Heather Morgan at hmorgan@chesco.org or 610-344-5540.

Target audience

This class is open to anyone who wants to learn how to be better prepared before, during, and after an emergency.  Students must be 16 or older to attend. If students are between 16-18 years old a parent or guardian must accompany them.
