Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Course Schedule


Types of Course Deliveries

The CERT Train-the-Trainer & Program Manager course is delivered from a few different type of sources:

  • Emergency Management Institute (EMI) - The Emergency Management Institute is FEMA's training division. EMI delivers the CERT Train-the-Trainer Course four times a year at their training institute in Maryland. States can also request a "local" or "L" delivery to be delivered locally at a cost to the state.

  • State Deliveries - Many States will deliver both the Train-the-Trainer and Program Manager course. In the State of California, 15 State deliveries were conducted in 2012.

  • Local Deliveries - Local Government and Private Sector entities may deliver the CERT Train-the-Trainer course. Local deliveries vetted by the state are State Approved courses. FEMA strongly suggests that CERT Train-the-Trainer courses are coordinated with/by States
