There are three types of classes  offered to assist residents of El Cerrito and Kensington to be self-sufficient in the event of a disaster: 

CERT Training
Utilizing the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) curriculum, this 20-hour program is designed to assist residents of El Cerrito and Kensington to be self-sufficient in the event of a disaster.
CERT Boot Camp
For those citizens who cannot attend the 20-hour Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) curriculum, the Fire Department offers an alternative training. The CERT Boot Camp is designed to provide those participants who cannot commit the required 20 hours for training. This non-certified one-day training will introduce participants to CERT in all program areas in a condensed format.
CERT Refresher Drills
The West Contra Costa CERT Training Consortium will conduct CERT Refresher Drills for those who have graduated from the CERT Program. Participants will exercise the skills learned during their CERT training during this refresher drill. This non-certified training will be offered in both the morning and afternoon and space will be limited so early registration will be a must.
Catch-up Classes

  • Are you a former NEAT participant, and want to get certified for CERT?
