CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens may initially be on their own and their actions can make a difference. While people will respond to others in need without the training, one goal of the CERT program is to help them do so effectively and efficiently without placing themselves in unnecessary danger. In the CERT training, citizens learn to:

• Manage utilities and put out small fires
• Treat the three medical killers by opening airways, controlling bleeding, and
treating for shock
• Provide basic medical aid
• Search for and rescue victims safely
• Organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective
• Collect disaster intelligence to support first responder efforts

All classes must be attended to receive a course certificate.


Students enrolled in other government-sponsored CERT classes can attend any of the scheduled training modules to complete the course. Please refer to the course schedule online or email so we can assure you can attend the correct location and time to assure your course completion.

The basic CERT course provided by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is the latest updated course curriculum provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Emergency Management Institute.
