Martinez Area CERT Skill Levels

Skill Levels, Resource Typing, and Credentialing The Martinez Area CERT uses Resource Typing to categorize each memberís Skill Level and capabilities for deployments to incidents. We have developed standard resource typing definitions to help our leadership request and deploy the resources they need through the use of common terminology.

Resource credentialing involves evaluation and documentation of an individual's current certifications and training. We have developed credentialing requirements for each Skill Level so that standards and capabilities are clearly identified.
