CERT Basic Training is normally 20 hours, and is held in person. However, Covid-19 and subsequent safety rules have rewritten our normal procedures. The State of California is working with the University of Utah to create a hybrid CERT learning environment: part online and part in person (as local circumstances allow). We expect the online part will be available later this fall.

Meanwhile, FEMA offers the updated CERT Training Manual online.
