Island County CERT classes run Friday through Sunday and consist of 20 hours of training. You may take this class as many times as you desire as we want you to feel comfortable with the knowledge we are sharing. The class is free to take.
You have taken that first step and registered for a class, thank you! Now what? You should receive the following information in your email after registering, and it will help you be prepared for your exciting CERT weekend.
Our CERT classes are 20 hours long, over three days. Times usually fluctuate as we often have guest speakers pop in to support your learning and skill building. We also work at the speed of the participant, so some sections may go faster than others, depending on the skill level within the classroom.
The CERT Basic Course is delivered in the community by a team of first responders and other qualified volunteers. Island County CERT is sponsored by Island County Department of Emergency Management.
This resource page guides you where to gain supplies for your preparedness kits, phone and tablet apps, continuing education, and so much more!
