CERT Basic Training Class

Updated 3/11/2022

The CERT Basic Training covers basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members are better able to assist their family, neighborhood or workplace following an event when first responders (paramedics, fire, police) are not immediately available to help.

In an emergency, CERT teaches you to take care of your personal safety first, then your family, and then those around you. It is important to know what to do to protect ourselves and our family members before, during, and after an emergency event. CERT Training helps you do exactly this.

In only two and half days, you can become certified in CERT! Most classes are held on two consecutive Saturdays and a half day on Sunday. 

Best of all – the classes are free to Napa County residents! Not only will you learn valuable emergency preparedness skills, you will have fun while also giving back to your community.

CERT classes for 2022 have resumed! Visit the Napa County Office of Emergency Services Training Opportunities for a calendar of available dates.
