CERT Basic Training Course
The Forsyth County Citizen Corps Council is offering the Community Emergency Response Team 21-hour Basic Training Course October 20 - November 17 (Tuesdays and Thursdays only) from 6:00 - 8:30 pm. Disasters can severely restrict and overwhelm emergency response resources and leave communities cut off from outside emergency support. CERTs are trained to take care of themselves and help others in their communities for the first three days following a disaster.
Upon successful completion, students are eligible to join a local community team. However, you’re not required to join a team in order to register for the course. The course will be limited to the first 25 qualified registrants. Participants must be at least 18 years old to join.
