Berkeley CERT Unit 2: CERT Organization

June 3, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Reservation required. Join Berkley CERT for an in-person training on CERT Organization! This is the second unit in the full 8-part CERT curriculum. “CERT Organization” covers the Incident Command System, a standardized framework used by emergency response agencies to manage emergency operations. When a CERT activates, it becomes part of that system. This training will explain the ICS format and detail how CERTs both operate within ICS and organize themselves to replicate that of the ICS structure.

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

1. Describe the CERT organizational structure;

2. Explain the Incident Command System and how CERT operates within this structure;

3. Describe the 9-step On-Scene size-up process; and

4. Describe how to use CERT standard documents for managing emergency operations.

Interested participants may take this course as a stand-alone training, or continue to register for all CERT courses. At this time, we cannot offer one registration for all eight CERT trainings at once.

Please address any specifically needed accommodations to the Event Organizer.
