Are you interested in learning disaster preparedness skills that may help you prepare for and recover from a major natural disaster?  Please consider signing up to be notified of when the next CERT SD Academy dates are announced.

Priority registration is given to those who live in the city of San Diego.  However we invite our out-of-town students to create a profile and come on the first day of class. If there are seats available, out-of-town students are welcome to join our academy.

As you consider this opportunity, here is a description of the requirements.

     Students must be at least 18 years old. 

     Attendance on all four days of the academy is mandatory for graduation.

Classes are held on two consecutive weekends (on both Saturday and Sunday) from approximately 9:30am until 4pm each day.  Classes will start promptly at 10am.  The location of the training will be provided upon successful registration.  There is no cost for the training and we provide safety gear and classroom materials.
