CERT SD Volunteer Opportunity

This opportunity can include non-CERT SD members and are mostly open to the public.  For instance, each academy graduation there is a live-action disaster drill that requires several disaster survivors (also known as Volunteer Victims).  Anyone who is 13 and older (with a parent or guardian's permission if under 18), can participate in this role.

Future Academy Notification Sign-up

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 sign up 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 9:30am until 4pm each day.  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.
