This is computer-based training (CBT). It is strongly recommended the use of a computer or iPad for this class. The use of a smart phone is NOT sufficient.
This class is a “Conditional” CERT Class. During this period when we cannot perform “hands-on” training this class will be Lecture Only. Then when CDC restrictions are lifted, we will offer a course of “Hands-On” training followed by a final exercise. You will then receive an unrestricted CERT G-317 diploma.
Expect an email approximately one week prior to the beginning of class with the instructions to join the on-line class.
*Please note the dates the modules are presented are subject to change and that ALL sessions must be completed to get a certificate – missed sessions may be made up at future CERT class offerings.*
The Dallas CERT training program includes the following sessions:
Unit 1- Disaster Preparedness
Unit 2- CERT Organization
Unit 3- Disaster Medical Operations Part 1
Unit 4- Disaster Medical Operations Part 2
Light Search and Rescue
Unit 8- Terrorism
The final session includes a disaster simulation to give volunteers the ability to apply their newly acquired skills in a simulated environment. CERT Graduates receive a certificate of completion.
