CERT Training


Basic Training Program

Broome County CERT hosts a Basic Training Program once per year in the spring. The class is open to all citizens in Broome County regardless of intent to join the team.

The course is seven evenings and one Saturday morning, all days are required.

Additionally, FEMA offers the online version of this class: IS-317 Introduction to Community Emergency Response Teams. For those wishing to joining the team, they would still be required to complete the "hands-on" portion of the Basic Training Program in addition to the online course.
